Staff Profile: Marc Stanney

Marc Stanney

Year 6 Class Teacher (5/6MS)

Marc graduated from University of Lincoln with an Honours Degree in Law, and from Bishop Grosseteste University with a Primary PGCE.

After initially working in the legal sector, Marc qualified as a teacher in 2007 and now has several years of primary teaching experience.  He has taken on several positions of responsibility during this time, including subject leader for English, History and MFL. He has taught children aged 4 to 11 and has more recently specialised as an Upper Key Stage 2 class teacher. He has led and supported a range of ECAs, including golf, football and debating.

Marc successfully implements cooperative learning strategies into his daily teaching approach and strongly promotes the development of student independence in his class.

Marc encourages children to be adventurous in their work, to take risks and uses his experience to help students to learn and grow from any hurdles that they face along the way.  Marc believes that politeness and manners are key to effective communication and admits to being a stickler for the use of correct grammar and punctuation – a standard which he also expects the children in his class to aspire to and achieve throughout the academic year.

Marc admires Aristotle’s quote: “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”  As such, he uses fun, thought-provoking and challenging subject matter to inspire and intrigue his students along the path of their learning journey.  Art and technology are regularly integrated into his lessons.

In his spare time, Marc likes to read classic literature and is widely travelled; he has visited countries across Europe, North America and Asia.  He is also an adept golfer and played at county level in the United Kingdom for 10 years before moving to Singapore.
