St Peter’s School of English: Supporting your success

St Peter’s School is a family-run, medium-sized school where we have been teaching English to foreign students since 1966. We have a friendly and supportive atmosphere and most of our staff have been with us for many years and are very experienced.

St Peter's has been accredited by the British Council since 1972 and we are also a member of English UK. The school is situated inside an attractive, period building in the centre of the historic city of Canterbury, (pop 40,000).

We are just a few minutes' walk from the magnificent Cathedral and the city centre with its shops, cafes and sites and from the medieval streets and their often ancient buildings. In the evening students can go to the theatre or cinema or relax in one of the many restaurants and pubs, or attend the regular social evenings at the school. There are seven classrooms with use of DVD, video and audio equipment. There is also an internet centre with free wi-fi where and nine free broadband computers plus a library of audio visual materials where students can listen to stories, practise listening comprehension and work on grammar and vocabulary. At the top of the building there is a games room and a large beamed sitting area with a small cafe bar, where students can meet their friends for a cup of tea and a chat. During the summer months they can relax in the private, beautiful, 18th-century walled garden available for staff and students.

Small class sizes give you a good opportunity to use your English and a chance to make friends. We also understand that your experience outside the classroom is very important to your learning. Canterbury is a city with a good cultural heritage, and we can arrange homestay with local people so you can experience English traditions.
