Chris Lewis was appointed Director of Studies at Bishopstrow in 2013.

Chris has been working with international students since he started his teaching career over twenty years ago.  His work has taken him across the world, spanning a variety of cultures and educational settings.

After spending his first year of teaching in Valencia, Spain, in late 2001 Chris moved to London to work with the SKOLA Group, teaching on English language support courses for international students.    Two years later, he was appointed Assistant Director of Studies for SKOLA’s adult education team and from 2003 he spent some time in the north of Russia, in Murmansk, running teacher training courses for local teachers.  From there, he moved on to West London College to work with international students preparing for English language A Levels.  In 2005, Chris moved to Bali to work with the Indonesian Australian Language Foundation to support graduate and postgraduate students in preparation for their studies in Australia.

Chris returned to the UK in 2007 to work with children in British schools as an English language and literature teacher.  And then, after returning to his home city of Manchester, he worked with INTO University Partnerships as a Programme Co-ordinator, teaching on and managing university foundation courses. His most recent post abroad was in 2012 with Singapore International Schools, establishing an English language study centre in Vung Tau, Vietnam.
