Kent English Language Centre

Our Kent English Language Centre offers popular homestay and English Language Course programmes in Sheerness, Sittingbourne and the Isle of Sheppey.

Our locations in Kent, south east England are situated close to the coast and within easy reach of London. Kent is considered the garden of England and so you will find a wonderful mixture of rolling green countryside, pretty villages and historic buildings.

Our students learn much more than physical skills through their participation in athletics. The collaborative experience of pursuing and attaining a common goal in athletics is unique, as it is combined with interscholastic competition. We are  proud of our winning tradition.
