Hilderstone College is extremely grateful for the way the local community has come together to help in this time of need. Broadstairs has a long tradition of welcoming, helping, and hosting international students – through Hilderstone and through our friends in the other language schools in the town. We have all welcomed students from the […]
It was a beautiful sunny day for our recent trip to London with a group of students from Switzerland. Look at those clear blue skies! We hope they had a wonderful day and enjoyed their fortnight’s stay with us in beautiful Broadstairs.
Our Isle of Thanet is famous for its ‘big skies’, and that’s partly why it has been popular with artists for centuries – the most famous being J.M.W. Turner, who spent much of his time in Margate and created several of his paintings and sketches in the area. Of course, our beautiful skies are available […]
Do you like our STUDENT ACHIEVEMENTS board? The teachers write up their students’ successes every week. Well done, everyone!
One of our most popular excursions is to the nearby city of Canterbury , about 28 km from Hilderstone College. Our students can also go there independently, as it’s just 25 minutes by direct train.

Hilderstone College IS the students – without our students we can’t survive. There were definitely some concerns back in March 2020 with an unknown illness moving round the globe and our students away from their homes and families. Although sad to see them leaving, we were relieved when the last student made it safely back […]
This month, we were delighted to welcome our first group back to Hilderstone since the pandemic started. Our Spanish group of young adults from IMECAT enjoyed a packed itinerary of classes, excursions and activities, as you can see from the photos! It was wonderful to have such an enthusiastic and friendly group here after so […]
I’ve been Deputy Director of Studies since September 2019. It’s been a strange couple of years and I don’t feel like I’ve had a ‘normal’ term in all that time! Even though we’ve had smaller groups of students attending classes in person at the college because of travel restrictions, we’ve had a lot of online […]
Pegwell nature reserve is a local beauty spot, about 8 km. from Hilderstone College. It’s a wonderful place for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts, with beautiful wetland walks and a great ‘hide’, a special lookout hut for birdwatchers. It begins at the famous Viking boat, a replica of a re-constructed Viking Longship. The replica sailed […]
