Marc Lewis

Senior Leadership Team

Marc is the Finance and Operations Director at an all-through school in North London.  He has responsibilities for Facilities, Administration, HR and ICT as well as Finance, and has seen his school, an academy, grow from having just Year 7 in 2008 to opening its sixth form and now welcoming primary students into new buildings.  Prior to this Marc worked outside education, in commercial property.  He has undertaken significant professional development, recently completing the School Business Director’s course at the National College and has previously completed an MBA in Educational Business Leadership at the IoE.


He has experience of what it is like to be in a small school as well as one that is growing, and the planning, strategic thinking, and leadership that is required in numerous school situations.  In his current setting, Marc leads a variety of teams, has developed and structured new systems, as well as adapting those inherited from elsewhere.  Marc combines strategic thinking and leadership with a hands on approach which means that he has real experience of dealing with many of the issues and problems which can occur in schools.  He welcomes the opportunity of working as an SLE as it as much about solving problems as it is about learning about, and working with, other schools.
