Mr Mark Poeti

Life before Longacre

Following the completion of my degree in Geographical Information Systems and PGCE, I have held a wide range of teaching and leadership roles in both independent and state school settings. I started out at St Peter’s Catholic School in Guildford back in 1996. I spent two and a half years at Cranleigh Prep and Senior School as Head of Computing across both schools. I moved to Longacre in 2017 before working at Woolmer Hill School where I held the role of Head of Year 7, 8 and transition and Lead teacher of Computing. I am delighted to have the opportunity to return to Longacre!

Roles at School

I arrive back at Longacre as Head of Computing, Able, Gifted & Talented Coordinator and Head of House. I will also be a Form V tutor.

Away from the Classroom

I enjoy spending time away from school with my wife Katie and three sons Freddie, Leo and Bobby. I am delighted that they have all inherited my passion for football and West Ham United! I am a keen runner, enjoy mountain biking and play golf, tennis and squash.
