About Us

Earlscliffe is a specialist provider of residential English language and academic preparation programmes for international teenagers. Based in the coastal town of Folkestone in the county of Kent (known as ‘The Garden of England), Earlscliffe is also very close to London and its airports.

Since 2002, Earlscliffe has been running courses for young people from all over the world to come together to learn English in England and gain a better understanding of each other’s cultures. We offer a choice of stimulating courses for teenagers from June until mid-August, as well as our traditional Easter course for 8 to 17 year-olds each spring.

Our courses at Earlscliffe strike the right balance between serious study, fun activities and ‘added value’. We focus on delivering high-quality programmes in only one school where we have full control of all aspects of the course. Basing our curriculum on the 21st century learning skills of collaboration, critical thinking, communication and creativity, our students are motivated and stimulated not only by the course content but its relevance to their generation’s aims and concerns.

We are delighted that both students and staff return to us year after year to be part of this Earlscliffe family environment. We look forward to welcoming you to Earlscliffe, either as a new student or one of our many returners!
