Meet the Team
'Staff go over and above in their duty to ensure my son feels supported and developed. They are invaluable in the raising of our child. We consider our son to be privileged to be a boarder.'
Mr Jesus Escribano Sanchez – Housemaster of East Wing, Head of West House, Teacher of PE and Spanish
Originally from Spain, Jesus studied Sport Science and completed his Masters in education just before he moved to Reading in 2014. Jesus has been teaching PE and Spanish at Reading School since 2015 and joined our boarding community as Deputy Housemaster in 2016. Jesus has always been an active member of the boarding community, especially in East Wing where he now lives with his wife, Maria. His interests lie mainly in the world of sports, in particular football and mountain biking. As well as being active, Jesus loves to travel and to meet new cultures from around the world.
When asked what he loves most about boarding, Jesus said it is the relationships he can build with the students over time and the sense of belonging that these students have for our boarding family. ”Every day in boarding is different and it’s impossible not to have a great day when you have such a strong team and unique students surrounding you”.

Mr Alun Lloyd – Housemaster of South House, Assistant Head in charge of Sixth Form, Teacher of English
Alun has not had to travel as far as Jesus to land in boarding, having grown up within 20 minutes of Reading School and in fact attended the School as a student. Alun returned to Reading School in 2014, as an English teacher, before becoming Assistant Head in charge of Sixth Form and most recently South House boarding housemaster. Alun lives with his wife, Lindsey and their young daughter, Ottilie in South House. His love of sport is clear to see and he will often be found trying to keep up with the boarders on the football field.
When asked about boarding life, Alun noted that it was the opportunity to be part of the family side of boarding that most appealed to him. “I love the opportunity that boarding provides to forge positive relationships with so many young people and their family. Already in the short time we’ve been in the boarding house, the boys have taken Ottilie under their wing and this community we have in South House and the relationships that can be formed are what make the boarding houses so special.”
