Concurrently with headship, Clarissa was elected to serve both as Chairman of the Boarding Schools’ Association (2001-2) and President of the Girls’ Schools Association (2005-6). Her non-executive roles include being a governor of The Royal Ballet School, a fellow of Winchester College and a trustee of the Africa Gifted Foundation.

She is the Founder of Dads4Daughters, an internationally recognised campaign to engage fathers of girls actively in the promotion of workplace equality. Her forthcoming book, to be published by Harper Collins in 2019, has been described as “a personal account of an extraordinary career and a provocative look at the state of the nation’s education system and what needs to change”.
