Marcus Cooper

Marcus has taught in a range of schools and settings across the entire early years and primary age range, holding various senior leadership positions. Following this he was a consultant for the DfE National Strategies, specialising in primary mathematics and school improvement. Subsequently he became Regional Advisor for School Improvement for London. More recently, Marcus was the Senior Education Manager for Hertfordshire overseeing school standards and the effective delivery of education across the authority.

In his current post, as part of the school effectiveness team, Marcus leads training for schools and governors, supports schools in their self-evaluation, and works closely with local authorities on school reviews.

A big part of Marcus's job is having oversight of all 105 schools in the Diocese, as well as those in the trust, and making sure the trust is aligned with the vision and values of the board of education.
