Ms. Sonia Fitzpatrick

Deputy Head of Secondary

Returning to the Fortes Education family after a previous 4 years at Sunmarke School, Mrs. Fitzpatrick is delighted to rejoin as part of the secondary team in Regents.  She received her BA hons in English and American Studies and PGCE at Christchurch University Canterbury, in the UK and is a firm advocate of lifelong learning.  Mrs Fitzpatrick believes that it is truly a privilege to be an educator of young people. She has always strived to encourage her passion for English Language and Literature to connect to the individual’s view of the world and themselves. She believes that this concept firmly rests in the Positive Education ethos which is at the centre of the Fortes Education brand. 

Mrs Fitzpatrick has a wealth of experience as a Senior Leader both in pastoral and academic roles in the UK and Dubai.  Her experience in the UAE started at Gems Wellington International School, Dubai as Head of English 10 years ago. She was part of the inauguration of Regent’s sister school Sunmarke, and as Deputy Head of Secondary at Regent, she is excited about supporting the continuing growth of the Secondary phase. 

Mrs Fitzpatrick is fortunate to have her two daughters and her husband also working for Fortes so in her spare time she enjoys socialising with her family and her three grandchildren. She also enjoys swimming, theatre and participating in Art workshops.
