Dr. González-Medina brings to TFS exceptional academic and international experience. Prior to his appointment, Dr. González-Medina was Headmaster at the British School of Barcelona (BSB), an international and co-ed school. During his tenure at BSB, he helped the school reignite its focus on academic excellence and student enrichment beyond the classroom.
Dr. González-Medina holds a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Oxford, and has been department head and a language and literature professor and lecturer for over two decades at prestigious schools and universities, including Eton College and the University of Oxford.

Among his other accomplishments, Dr. González-Medina has designed a pre-university syllabus for Cambridge International Examinations, written award-winning novels and has been a cultural commentator and media spokesperson on many educational topics, including bilingualism in schools and international mindedness in students.
Dr. González-Medina states: "There are few schools like TFS in the world. Students are immersed in and master French, as well as other languages, and they study multiple international curricula all within a wonderfully diverse and supportive community. I can't imagine how you could better prepare your child for the complex, interconnected world we now live in. I'm honored to head such a school."
