STAFFORD HOUSE SCHOOL OF ENGLISH

Stafford House School of English was founded in 1952. With over 55 years experience and success behind us, we remain focused on maintaining the highest standards and on the development of each student’s full potential.

Based in Canterbury, UK we offer a traditional English experience less than 1 hour from London, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds in a city that has recently been voted the safest for students in the UK.

We are committed to personalize learning. You will regularly get personal feedback on your progress. From this you have the opportunity to discuss your changing needs and make any changes to your program or choice of options. Class participation, creative thinking, regular personal tutorials and testing are just some of the proven methods that guarantee our students’ success in learning English.

All our permanent teaching staff holds a Diploma in English Language Training to Adults (DELTA). This is an advanced English teaching qualification that shows the exceptional quality and ability of the staff at the School.

Our personalized English teaching is an immersive process – focused on life in the UK as well as in the classroom – social activities, excursions and living arrangements are integral components of the approach. Additionally, our small class sizes (an average class size of ten, and a maximum size of 14) and closely monitored nationality mix ensure that English is spoken, rather than your native language, in the classroom.

Your health, security, happiness and learning are of great importance to us. We pride ourselves in the friendly and supportive environment of the School. A dedicated team of activity organisers will help you get the most out of your spare time in the UK, including excursions to London, visits to museums and art galleries and outings to theatres, cinemas and concerts.

Stafford House School of English has a fun and friendly atmosphere. We sincerely look forward to welcoming you to Canterbury and working with you to create and achieve an exciting future.
