Meet the Head

Heywood Prep

Rebecca Mitchell, Headmistress
MA (Cantab), PGCE, QTS

Having gained a degree in Geography and Education from Cambridge University, Rebecca taught at Rose Hill Westonbirt for seven years, developing experience across the Foundation Stage, Pre-Prep and Prep.

Her interest in travelling and broadening horizons has taken her to India, Thailand and  South Africa.  A self confessed multi-tasker, creative interests include photography and specialist cake making!  With two boys and a girl of her own, Rebecca understands the importance of great communication between parents and teachers and is particularly keen to encourage creative thinking and writing, especially for boys.

She says: Heywood Prep is a truly inspiring learning environment, which reminds me of my own prep school, where I spent my very happy formative years.
