Lucien Bowater / SchoolOnline.AI

Lucien Bowater, CEO, SchoolOnline.AI. As the CEO of SchoolOnline, I lead a purpose-driven startup that aims to level the playing field for children. We use the latest technology to significantly reduce teacher workload – in both marking and lesson preparation – leading to improved wellbeing and more time with students. Our expert exam preparation videos cover 1,700 questions from past papers, explained by experienced teachers and examiners. Our videos are proven to improve exam scores and boost confidence for students who cannot afford private tuition.

With over 15 years of senior leadership experience at Sky, I have a track record of driving digital transformation, innovation, and customer-centric strategies across multiple departments. I founded Sky Labs, an internal innovation centre that broke through business challenges and delivered cultural change.

As a trustee at STEP Academy Trust, I support a network of outstanding primary academies that serve disadvantaged communities. I have an MBA from Cambridge University, Judge Business School, and have studied at Stanford and INSEAD.
