About 9ine


We are a dedicated team of in-house experts and the 'go to' team who understand the information schools process, through what systems, where the problems are and how to solve them.

Our Story...

In 2009 Mark Orchison started 9ine from his kitchen table in Greenwich, London. Over the course of the next ten years, Mark has led the business to become the leading independent K-12 technology and compliance consultancy in the UK and internationally.

We pride ourselves on the investment in our staff and clients. Being owner managed our culture and values are tied to our managing director, rather than the priorities of shareholders.

With a team of twenty multi-disciplinary and specialist consultants in-house our client base expands across Africa, Middle-East, Russia, India, Asia and the Americas.
