The King’s School has a history dating back to 597AD, making it Britain’s oldest boarding school. The school is in the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral and St Augustine’s Abbey – both World Heritage Sites – right in the heart of the medieval town centre of Canterbury.
Modern accommodation, teaching, and recreational facilities combined with the medieval school buildings and grounds offer a magical experience. Sporting facilities on offer at the nearby King’s School sports centre include an indoor swimming pool, gym, tennis and squash courts, and outdoor playing fields.
Students attending Canterbury can choose from our English Plus options which include Performing Arts and additional Speaking and Writing lessons. Both are available at no extra cost and allow students to personalise their course. Our English Plus Tennis and Fencing options are also held at Canterbury, Students can opt to take 5 hours of professional tennis and/or 5 hours of fencing lessons for young learners for an additional fee per week.
