We are delighted that he has agreed to lead the school again, during this transition.

During Mr. Mitchell’s three years as Head of School at BCS, he implemented changes that strengthened the school, and made strategic decisions that have proven instrumental in enabling the school to thrive, as it is today.

    Mr. Mitchell has remained connected to BCS since his days as a student and has remained deeply engaged with the school since his headship concluded in 2015. Please join us in welcoming him back. We feel extremely fortunate to have him return as our 31st Head of School.
