principal Aitchison College

Michael Alister Thomson

Australian Michael Thomson is the 18th Principal of Aitchison College. With extensive experience in international education and a strong boarding background, he believes in a broad and challenging school experience for every boy. He is the first foreign principal appointed since Independence.

“While the College will always produce outstanding academic results, we do not measure boys by grades alone. We place the importance of character, self-discipline, community, integrity and effort at the heart of everything we do. Boys admitted to Aitchison must live up to high standards. And being blessed with one of the world's finest campuses, sitting as it does in Lahore, we are compelled to educate the DNA of Pakistan and to bring boys from all parts of the country and from all layers of society together on the basis of merit and equity.”


All appointments with the Principal must be pre-arranged with his office ( and with the purpose of the visit clearly stated.
