John Fordham was Head of Biology at KES from 1963–1967. He joined KES from Bristol Grammar School, succeeding Dr J J Head who had left to join the Nuffield School Biology Project. He also ran School Rugby [having Welsh origins made the job hard to refuse] and in 1966 succeeded HTR Twyford as Housemaster of Lynwood. JSF left in 1967 for the post of Deputy Head at Yeovil School and in 1972 went on to be Head of Spalding Grammar School. He is now in retirement, but beekeeping, in the Lake District.
