Stagecoach

Broomfield has hosted a Stagecoach school since 2002. At first, the school was owned and run directly by Stagecoach, and then in 2004 the current principal, Stephen Guilfoyle and his wife Jenny took over Stagecoach Kew, taking it from strength to strength. Many Broomfield children enjoy their Friday and Saturday classes at Stagecoach alongside children from around the area with the classic Stagecoach mix of singing, acting and dancing.

We were all very excited when one of our Stagecoach Kew dance teachers, Lizzie Gough, was one of the last remaining finalists in the 2010 BBC dance show “So You Think You Can Dance?” The children were even more excited when Lizzie arrived at the school one Thursday evening with a BBC film crew to film for that week’s live show alongside her Stagecoach pupils from Broomfield and other local schools.

Stagecoach is a wonderful addition to life at Broomfield and we are delighted Stephen and Jenny continue to choose Broomfield as the home for their excellent school, using our hall and other performance facilities to the full. Stagecoach Kew can be contacted via their website on

Arrangements for learning from 23 March

It is with regret that Broomfield House School will be partially closing from 3.30pm on Friday 20th March.  We have been open and providing our customary high quality education in school until this point but, following Government advice, we will now be fully supporting the children’s learning at home.  We have developed robust plans for this, working with our website provider and IT systems support and will be delivering age-appropriate teaching to our children and families.  We will be supporting many different ways of learning which will include text-based work, online lessons, video content and, with parental support, will be marking the children’s work and giving feedback to parents about it.  In Early Years we will also use the Tapestry system.

Developing these new ways of working and learning are exciting and we are confident that the innovations we are introducing to deal with these strange times will offer long term benefits to pupils, parents and staff alike.

We will continue to support the children of key workers at school to allow their parents to provide these critical services during the current situation.

We have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our school community.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone well and hope you all stay safe and healthy.

With all good wishes

Mrs Susie Byers
Headteacher
