One of Canada’s pre-eminent girls’ schools, Crofton House School (CHS) provides an exceptional educational experience for 900 extraordinary girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Established over 100 years ago and set on a beautiful ten-acre campus in Vancouver, CHS is well governed and financially strong. The School has just completed the Campus Master Plan, an $80 million capital development program, creating a world-class learning environment to support its bold educational aims.
The Board of Governors now seeks an inspirational educator to succeed Dr. Patricia Dawson who will retire in June 2019 after 19 years of outstanding service to Crofton House School. The School is in the early stages of implementing a bold strategic plan that articulates its commitments and objectives against four pillars, one of which encompasses the launch of a bursary program as a strategic priority. This is an exciting opportunity to lead a diverse and dynamic community into a significant new stage in its evolution and to develop CHS as the leader in girls’ education in Canada.
The appointed candidate will be a visionary educator with a track record of successful leadership experience and the wisdom and strategic skills to lead a high performing organization to even greater success. A collaborative leader, the next Head will empower and build capacity in others, inspiring an experienced and dedicated faculty and energizing students, parents and other stakeholders. First-class communication skills are essential as is the ability to be a warm, engaging and highly visible figure within the Crofton House community and externally. The successful candidate will have a passionate and authentic belief in the benefits of single sex education for girls. The appointed Head will be able to clearly articulate the unique role that CHS must play in educating girls in the 21st Century to assume meaningful leadership roles in the world.
