Robin Marcus (Vice Chair)

 

I am proud to be the Vice Chair of Legra Academy Trust. Born in Westcliff on Sea, I attended Chalkwell Junior School and Belfairs High School. Belfairs set me up for a successful career as a solicitor practising locally for 25 years. In addition to my work as a lawyer I developed an internet marketing business employing people from the local community and beyond. I currently work as a Consultant to schools helping them convert to an academy. As well as the Chair of Legra Academy trust I am also I on the local governing bodies of Belfairs Academy, Cecil Jones Academy and Darlinghurst School. I have sat on a number of Interim Executive Boards working with schools in need of improvement. In my free time I support Southend United and volunteer at Tate Modern. I also work with a charity helping people in court who do not have legal representation.  I live in Chalkwell and have two grown up sons.
