News Peter Thompson – Director of Operations/Chief Operating Officer

Peter joined BDAT in November 2015. After a full career as a Warfare Officer in the Royal Navy during which he saw much of the world (especially the Gulf and West Indies) and gained a Master’s degree in Defence Studies, he took early retirement and moved to Yorkshire to become the Bursar at Bingley Grammar School. In 2007 he left there to take up the post of Bursar at a small co-educational all-through Independent day and boarding school in North Yorkshire prior to joining Woodhouse Grove School as Operations Director in 2012.

Peter’s expertise is in making business decisions to provide the best value support to staff and pupils to give every pupil the opportunity to achieve their full potential. He has delivered a number of high value projects involving new build and refurbishment programmes on time and on budget. As an HR Generalist, he provides advice and support to the management teams and enjoys building and shaping teams of people to meet the ever changing needs of schools.

Peter is a Director of the New Collaborative Learning Trust and Chair of the Advisory Board of New College Bradford.
