Meet our Team

Mrs Wendy Mitcheson


Hello! I am delighted to lead this wonderful school and feel very privileged to be part of such a diverse school community.
My passion for education is unwavering and I am relentless in my drive in ensuring all children are effective learners, have self-confidence and feel there are no-limits to their achievements.
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 this school.
Mathematics is a subject I feel extremely passionate about and after being a maths advisor for several years, I am excited to be leading on this subject across school.
Please pop over and say 'hello' when I am out on the yard.
Also, 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 / Reception Teacher

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.
