After four years of excellent leadership, David Perfield has informed the Board of Trustees that he will resign as Head of Oldfields School on June 30, 2022. While the Board made it clear to David that they wanted him to stay and lead the school for many years to come, they accepted his decision to return to his roots and the need to be closer to his extended family.
Board Chair Nancy Palmer P '12 has agreed to step in as Interim Head of School effective July 1, 2022 to ensure a smooth transition for the coming year. She has served on the Oldfields Board since July of 2016, and as Board Chair since July 2020. She is deeply committed to an Oldfields education and all that it provides to our students. She is a mother of two girls and the proud parent of a five-year senior, Liz Palmer, who graduated in 2012.
