Meet our Interim Head of School: David Thompson

We are pleased to welcome Mr. David Thompson as our Interim Head of School for the 2020-21 School Year.  David is an accomplished leader in education, serving as a Head of School for many years at a variety of schools which range from start-up opportunities to established International Baccalaureate programmes.  Recently retired from Montcrest School in Toronto, David brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.  Included in his curriculum vitae are leadership positions at Lakefield College School, Greenwood College School, Upper Canada College, and Crescent School. By using innovative practices he has been able to identify and meet the needs of a school both academically and operationally. He has been recognized for inspiring exceptional academic performance, vision, and community spirit.  David will remain with us for the school year of 2020/2021.

Although David is the “Interim” Head, his experience will serve Aspengrove well and he will continue our vision and journey without interruption.  The Board is confident that the school will be well positioned for transition to a new Head of School in the summer of 2021.

Message from Mr. Thompson


Who is the typical Aspengrove student? There is no such thing. We have created a community that provides students with rich and diverse experiences that allow them to explore and open horizons in ways that they never could have imagined.

Our exceptional teaching faculty inspires students curiosity and critical thinking skills through the delivery of the internationally recognized International Baccalaureate program. We also understand the essential nature of helping students find inspiration beyond the classroom through diverse opportunities in music, art, drama, athletics and outdoor education. Our goal is to help students find the best in themselves so that they will make a difference in the world.

Whether you have been investigating school options for sometime or this is your first inquiry at an independent school, you will likely have many questions. Our goal for your introduction to Aspengrove is to be personal, thorough and informative. We encourage you to explore our website but even better book a visit with us. We would be pleased to answer your questions and share with you all that makes Aspengrove so special.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
