A Call to Aspiring Heads: Please Take Our Survey!

March 2016 — Twenty-five years ago, Wickenden Associates conducted its first national survey of independent school leaders (Preparing for Headship: Advice from the Front Lines). Since then, we have periodically surveyed Heads of School about the challenges and rewards of leading independent schools. With NAIS predicting a wave of Head of School retirements over the next few years, we think it’s time for a new survey project. This time, we want to hear — anonymously — from the next generation of independent school leaders.

If you are actively pursuing your first independent school headship, positioning yourself for a headship down the road, or just mulling the possibility of running your own school one day, this survey is for you! The survey will close on March 31, and we will publish the results this spring.  >>Take the survey here.
