Principal Search

Since opening our doors in 1962, strong leadership has been at the heart of our world-class institution.

ON 23 NOVEMBER, THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS ANNOUNCED the search process to select the next Principal of Lyford Cay International School.

The Board has approved a Search Committee, and we appreciate their commitment to this important work. The Committee members look forward to hearing from our school community through a series of in-person and virtual Community Consultations and an online survey. They will also provide regular updates on the search process and leadership transition through this website.

A Message from the Chair of the Board

Simon Townend, Chair, Board of Directors & Governors

The Board of Directors and Governors has initiated the deliberate process of finding the next permanent leader of our school community.

To lead the important process of finding our next Principal, we have assembled a Search Committee composed of members of the LCIS community who bring diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Led by Co-Chairs Kylie Nottage and Lauren Symonette, the group is committed to a deliberate and inclusive process to find the best individual to lead LCIS into the future.

We are pleased to announce that we have selected the global leadership and advisory firm, Spencer Stuart. The team at Spencer Stuart will be led by Mary Gorman and Aaron Mieszczanski.

Mary and Aaron bring an impressive track record as specialists in leading searches on behalf of top independent schools worldwide. They also have experience as independent school leaders themselves in their careers. They are not tied to any one global school network and so benefit from an independent and specialist line of sight to all the leading candidates across the world for this LCIS search.

We will continue to share updates as the search progresses.

Thank you again.
