Michelle Allbones
Head of Finance 
I’ve come from a varied financial and business background including accountancy practice, industry and other Charitable Organisations. I’ve been a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant for over 20 years and have a Masters Degree in Planning and Development.


I’m very excited to join the C.I.T. team and can’t wait to get started! Hopefully everyone will see something good and exciting about financial information, and how it can help all of our schools going forward, instead of the apprehension or groans that are often heard when the word “finance” is mentioned. 

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, baking and weightlifting (although not together!)

Assisting with project management, management tools and KPI’s. Centralisation of commercial services, utilities, procurement, stock management as well as contract management and negotiations.
My background is in Commercial Business Analysis and Supply Chain Management.
