Year 7 Tutor Team

A massive welcome from the Year 7 Tutor Team.

Director of Learning – Miss Gordon

Hello Year 7. I am delighted to be your Director of Learning (Head of Year) in September. This means that, along with your form tutors, I am responsible for keeping you safe, happy, and ensuring you are settled at Townsend. I have worked at Townsend Church of England School for two years and teach English and Maths. I teach a lot of Year 7 classes so am excited to get to know you better both inside and outside of the classroom. My favourite hobbies are swimming, walking (in the mountains), travelling and photography. I like to travel as much as I can: my favourite country that I have visited is Slovenia as its lakes and mountains are truly spectacular. I think my love for the mountains really blossomed when on my Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition in the Transylvanian mountains (Romania): an incredibly beautiful part of the world. I am inspired by all of our students – those who learn to use new vocabulary in their work, those who ask a question when previously they were too worried to, those who help others to feel welcome at school and those who strive to better themselves each day. I wonder how you will inspire me. I look forward to meeting the wonderful students I have been told so much about in September.
