New BSS head stresses high standards not perfectionism

The summer of 2017 will be one of change for Bishop Strachan School as school head Deryn Lavell resigns after eight years and the new head, Judith Carlisle, comes on board. Ms. Carlisle has a distinguished record in the United Kingdom where she has had leadership roles at a number of schools. She is now head of Oxford High School, part of the Girl’s Day School Trust alliance, the largest grouping of private schools for girls in the UK. The news release issued by BSS earlier this year noted Carlisle’s initiative known as “Goodbye Little Miss Perfect,” the goal of which is to teach students to make the distinction between high standards and “unhelpful perfectionism.’’ The Search is Over!  Girl’s Day School Trust
