Head Succession Planning

In June 2017, Dr. Dawson informed the Board of Governors that she would serve two more years as Head of Crofton House School. The Board has begun the process of identifying an exceptional successor for Dr. Dawson. All communications and updates related to this process will be made available here.

Perrett Laver

Perrett Laver, a leading international executive search firm, has been appointed to advise and support Crofton House.

Perrett Laver serves the schools, universities and non-profits sector globally and has advised many academic institutions world-wide on the appointment of school Heads and university Presidents. Locally, Perrett Laver recently supported UBC in their appointment of Professor Santa Ono as President, as well as Shawnigan Lake School in the appointment of their new Head.

The Head Succession Task Force, established by the Board of Governors, would very much like to hear the opinions of parents, students, alumnae and faculty about what particular qualities we are looking for in our next Head.
