British School of Geneva is very pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Thompson as the new Principal. Mr. Thompson will start on 18th August 2022 and joins BSG from Kilkenny College in Ireland, where he was Headmaster.
Mr. Thompson will bring nearly 20 years of experience as a Headmaster to BSG. Under his leadership, Kilkenny College has developed as Ireland’s largest and most successful co-educational boarding and day school, with 960 students and more than 140 staff.
Commenting on his new role, Mr. Thompson said: “The role of Principal at BSG is a very exciting one for me. It would always take a lot for me to leave a wonderful school like Kilkenny College, but the opportunity to join another very successful school with a close parent community was inspiring. It is a privilege to be asked to lead this tremendous school community. The greatest compliment a family can give to a school is to entrust it with the education of their child. I am looking forward to working with my colleagues to ensure BSG continues to evolve as an outstanding school, an important member of the International Schools Partnership and becomes the local school of choice for parents in the Geneva area.”
