Paul Thompson

Head of School

Welcome to Nivki Early Years and Lower Primary School!

I am a UK trained teacher with fifteen years of experience in a variety of educational settings. I have been a member of the BISU team since 2016 and feel privileged to work at such a prestigious institution, where the needs of students always come first. I am looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead as we take the school to even greater heights.
