Meet our Team

Mrs Wendy Mitcheson


I feel extremely privileged to lead this very caring and welcoming primary school, which serves a diverse community of approximately 240 children.
I have great delight in getting to know all of the children and their little personalities. I feel extremely honoured to be able to watch them grow and develop into independent, resilient and caring young people.
Being a mum to 3 school aged children is an absolute joy and my hopes and ambitions for their experience of school life certainly sets the bar for what I strive to achieve at Broadwood primary school.
All staff and governors are fully committed to providing the best possible education for all children as we want every child to reach their true potential and be the very best that they can be.

If you see me in the school yard, please pop over and say 'hello'. I am always open to new ideas and the feedback from our community is very important to me.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything you would like to discuss.
Kind Regards
Mrs Wendy Mitcheson

Mrs Susan Brooks-Tyreman

Deputy Headteacher / Early Years Lead

I am Susan Brooks-Tyreman, Deputy Headteacher of this wonderful school. I have worked at Broadwood for many years and it has been a privilege to see so many children grow and develop and move onto their next adventures in education.
Early Years is a special passion of mine - working in Reception with such a great team is a joy and having the opportunity to lead the team is a role I love.
I am a mam with two children (can I say children when one of them is 26?). As a family we have a love of music and seeing bands, reading and travelling. Being the lead for language teaching in school ties in with my love of travel and learning about different cultures.
Once again, it is a real privilege to be Deputy Head of this fantastic school. I always have an open door if there is anything you wish to discuss with me.
