I am Ms Williams and I am proud to be the Head of Year 8. I am a member of the Art department and also the Design and Technology department. This means that I teach in both North Wing and South Wing and am therefore visible and available to my year 8 students wherever they are studying.
Mr Hawkes is our Deputy Head of Year and is also the Head of Keats College. Mr Hawkes is a PE teacher and, in his role as DHOY, will focus on attendance and punctuality. We have an excellent team of tutors who are Ms Khatun (8SK), Ms John (8JJ), Mr McGuiness (8GM), Mr McRill (8TM), Ms Hall (8AH), Ms DeFreitas and Mr Saleem (8ND), Ms Kubiangha (8AK), Mr Cox (8SC), Ms Jones (8EJ) and Mr Manhare (8SM). The tutors are supported by Ms Simms, Ms Greany, Mr McKay and Ms Foster.
Year 8 is an exciting year. Students are now familiar with the school and are able to take advantage of all Fortismere has to offer. They can make excellent progress in all subjects and really develop their knowledge and skills. Now that the students are not the youngest in the school they are role models to our Yr7s. I know that my students will set an excellent example and I will be very proud of them.
