Franc Donohoe


Hello there!

I’m Franc and I joined the Lewis School teaching team in February 2022.  I was born in Scotland but grew up not far from Southampton.

In addition to my teaching certificate, I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s in British Cultural Studies and I’ve been a teacher for more than 30 years, both here in the UK and overseas.
I lived for two years on a small island in the Sea of Japan, where I was the first foreign person many of the locals had met. Later I moved to Tokyo, where I worked at some of the city’s busiest language schools when I wasn’t raiding Nakano Broadway for Godzilla collectables.

Before starting work at Lewis, I taught for 12 years at a language school in Winchester, and I’ve also worked in British higher education, including several years spent as a Senior Lecturer at Solent University.

I genuinely enjoy opportunities to meet and work with people from all over the world.  In my free time I relax by reading genre fiction and listening to electronic music.
