The Board of Trustees has unanimously chosen Bill Clough as our next Head of School effective July 1, 2019. Bill was the strong recommendation to the Board from the Search Committee and was selected from a national pool of candidates after a process that included input from the entire St. Anne’s community. At the end of the day, the feedback from our community was overwhelming- Bill was the clear choice. Fortunately, Bill felt the same fit and enthusiastically accepted the role. 

Bill currently serves as Head of School for the Nichols School in Buffalo, NY- an independent school serving grades 5-12. Prior to Nichols, Bill was Dean of Faculty, Associate Head of School and Acting Head of School for the Berkshire School, an independent boarding school in Sheffield, MA. Bill holds a bachelor’s degree from Colby College, a master’s degree in English from Middlebury College, and a master’s degree in education from Harvard University. Bill is known as a caring and compassionate leader, one who always puts children first and values a strong sense of community. 

We are extremely excited to welcome Bill to our community!
