Head of School Search

January 14, 2021

Dear Members of the Winston Community,

Over the past months, our search consultants at Wickenden Associates have been actively sourcing, vetting and interviewing several prospective Head of School candidates for the Winston School. Not surprisingly, there has been strong interest in the opportunity to lead the school from excellent candidates nationwide.  Our Search Committee has been hard at work vetting the candidates, and recently invited seven experienced and very talented educators to participate in interviews with the Search Committee.

After thoughtful deliberation, the Committee has selected three outstanding candidates as finalists in our search for Winston’s new Head of School. These three candidates have been invited to visit Winston at the end of January. During this time, the candidates will have the opportunity to engage with important constituencies including faculty and staff, trustees, donors, alumni, and parents, while remaining diligent and committed to our COVID-19 safety protocols and policies.

Feedback from all constituencies in the Winston community is very important to the Search Committee and will meaningfully help us as we ascertain who is the best fit to lead Winston in the years ahead.

A schedule and details of logistics is forthcoming. We look forward to sharing more about each of the candidates as well as the opportunities for you to meet them soon.

Thank you again for your support. We will keep you posted.


Leslie Lloyd
Chair of the Search Committee
