Our Principal, Lee, is quite an action man when he’s not organizing us all at Hilderstone College! Here he is photographed recently on the edge of the glacier, after 1200m of climbing to finish at 2600m, at the Aletsch Half Marathon in Switzerland. Lee also cycles, and sometimes leads our students in cycling or circuit […]
Our local area, known as the Isle of Thanet, is famous for its beautiful sunrises and sunsets; the famous British artist, Turner, is quoted as saying that ‘the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe.’ Here are some stunning photographic examples, taken by our own Head of Marketing, Lynne Hoenes on her mobile […]
This wonderful photograph was taken by one of our students, George (Jiajin Hou), from China, on a recent excursion to Whitstable. It’s a lovely coastal town famous for its seafood, especially oysters, and its artist studios, and it’s only about 30 minutes away by train or car. Look at that beautiful sky! Thanks, George.
Last night we were entertained by the wonderful dancing of students from the Duncan Centre Conservatory, Prague,who are studying English here again for the 3rd year! Here is a video of their performance, devised by the students themselves in just one day.

It’s a small town but has some really interesting little shops and cafes, and it’s very pleasant to walk around the narrow streets with quirky […]
