Broomfield School appoints a new Headteacher The Board of Governors of Broomfield School is delighted to announce the appointment of Adele Christofi as our new Headteacher. Adele will lead the school from September 2022, taking over from Cate Seymour who has been Interim Headteacher for the past year.

Adele joins Broomfield following 12 years at Holy Family Catholic School in Walthamstow, in role as Head of the Upper School. Prior to that, she was at Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School in Barnet, where she was a Head of Year and Acting Assistant Head Teacher.

Adele joins us with a background of drama teaching. She studied at the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, which has trained the likes of Laurence Olivier and Dame Judi Dench. Whilst at Central she completed a degree in Drama and Education, followed by a PGCE in Drama. Most recently, she has also completed the National Professional Qualification for Headship alongside the Institute of Education.

Adele says, "I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed as the Headteacher of Broomfield School and I am very excited to start meeting all of the pupils, staff and parents. I look forward to working together to ensure that all of our young people finish secondary school with an education and experience they can be proud of and look back on with fond memories."

The Chair of the Board of Governors, Prof. Gregory Thwaites, began the recruitment process in December 2021, intent on finding a candidate with the requisite qualities to maintain, and build upon, the educational standards already in place at the school.

"Adele impressed us all throughout the process with her vision, warmth, experience, attention to detail and passion for comprehensive education" said Mr Thwaites. "This is a new step on Broomfield's journey of continual improvement."
