Rating: 3.9/5.0

St Peters School of English

The language school St Peters School of English was founded in Canterbury, England UK in 1966. We are an extremely friendly, family-run school in the heart of historic Canterbury only two minutes walk from the ancient Cathedral, the centre of the Anglican church, and the high street with its cafes and shops.

The school address is: 4 St Alphege Lane, CT1 2EB - Canterbury, England UK (see on map)

Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by St Peters School of English

We have an extensive cleaning system in place already. Some years ago we put up hand sanitizers on the main school entrance and we have the place wiped and cleaned several times a day.

In future we will enforce social distancing in classes by having more spaces between chairs, and also in any open spaces such as the garden or any eating areas.
We will liaise closely with agents, teachers, home stays and the local government to trace the health of students. If someone is unwell they will be sent home. For those that stay with home stays the home stay family will closely monitor the health of the student. At all times the school will stay in continuous touch with the ill student and advise medical appointments whenever necessary.

Our measures will be continuously reviewed and updated whenever appropriate. We are English UK and British Council members and are regularly in touch with local government. This means we are in a strong position in terms of official guidance.

Other comments: The school and the teachers are fine, I was happy about this. The problems were about the family who hosted me... they are good person but were cheapskates (they never cooked me any fish or steak during my 4 week stay there.) The temperatures at times were cold in the house, and they cooked me potatoes 85% of the time. It seemed they hosted people just for money and not for passion.
Central location, very helpful and patient teachers.
