Jean Llanes-Thays

Head of Language Acquisition & Teacher of French and Spanish

Jean Llanes-Thays obtained his PGCE in Foreign Languages from the UCL Institute of Education in London, England. Previously, he had obtained an MA in French as a foreign language from Université Michel de Montaigne in Bordeaux, France and a BA in Japanese studies from INALCO in Paris. 

Jean has taught both French and Spanish in a variety of countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Turkey and England.

Jean joins us from Madrid, Spain, where he has spent the last eight years teaching French in the Foreign Languages Department and helping out on the pastoral side as the Grade Level Leader for Grades 9 and 10.

With his lovely wife, they have two children and two pugs. They all love returning home to Madrid to be with family and friends and enjoy their time in Arcachon, France, where they spend most of their days on the beach or on a boat.
