Barbara Mitchell has been Headteacher at Weston since January 2010 and has been a teacher since 1977 so has taught and implemented most new educational initiatives. Mrs Mitchell still teaches our pupils and has many other responsibilities outside of being Headteacher. She brought the International dimension to our school and has been instrumental in working with the British Council to secure grant funding that has given  our teachers (and teachers in other Cheshire East schools)  the opportunity to observe, and teach in, schools in Europe, South Africa and China providing them with remarkable professional and personal development.

Mrs Mitchell has a grown up son and a grandson. She lives in Staffordshire with her husband and two Miniature Schnauzers.

What spare time she has is taken up looking after her family, reading for pleasure and walking the dogs with a little bit of travelling thrown into to mix.
