Brigid Dyson – Headteacher

Brigid has been the headteacher of Furneux Pelham School since September 2012. Prior to this she was deputy head at a school in Essex.


Although a northerner at heart, she started her teaching career in Essex before moving to a school in Bishop’s Stortford and then back to Essex. She was a class teacher for almost 30 years before becoming a headteacher.


She works closely with other local schools, both primary and secondary, believing that all children deserve the very best in education. Collaboration and working with the wider community are also important to her. Brigid has three grown up sons who all attended state schools.
