Local beach voted the best in Kent!

The Sunday Times newspaper has named Stone Bay, Broadstairs, as the best beach in Kent! Stone Bay is a gorgeous beach and won the accolade due to its ‘strangely beautiful curve of flat sand and rockpools’. Chris Haslam, The Sunday Times’ chief travel writer, said that ‘Stone Bay’s white cliffs reflect the sun’s heat ‘creating […]

Teacher Development Course – review by Susanna, July 2019

Here’s a wonderful review by Susanna, an English teacher from Austria, who has just completed a Creative Teaching and Culture course here at Hilderstone College. Thank you, Susanna, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!  When I decided to do advanced teacher training, I did not know much about Hilderstone College in […]

Marisa came as a low level student, as she says, and left ready to tackle a Masters Degree in English. We were thrilled to hear of her success and are excited to know what she will do with the rest of her life.

My live changed one year ago. I never wanted to go to learn English outside of Spain, mainly because I was afraid. However, I decided to try and I couldn’t have made a better choice. My adventure began for 3 months in a country I had never visited, England and in a town I did […]

Principal hits a peak!

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 […]

Laura is from Germany and studied with us in the summer of 2016. Although she was only with us for a short time, we all remember her fondly and wish her well with her studies at the German university in Hungary.

Three months at Hilderstone

My name is Charlotte and I stayed for three months at Hilderstone until October 2017. Although I could improve my English skills, it’s still difficult for me to write an essay! (I never liked it). Always when I think back I have a big smile on my face because my time at the school was […]

Agnes came to us in the autumn of 2015 and stayed into 2016. With her constant smile and energy she worked hard to reach her level and get on a Masters course in Sheffield. It was no surprise to us when we heard that she had graduated.

When I went to Hilderstone College to improve speaking and writing, it was the time I needed to improve my IELTS score, which was 6 in the average for the second time. I had to reach 7 in next 6 months. I had two fantastic teachers, which were Lee and Pierre, playing an important role […]

Sena, from Turkey, was a student in 2016-17. She worked really hard and it was a pleasure to see her level advance.

Coming to England and choosing Hilderstone College was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I had so much fun while learning English because my teachers were caring, kind and tactful. In Hilderstone, there are always interesting activities to do and places to see for free times. I can say […]

Katie, from Thailand, studied twice at Hilderstone and is now at university in the UK.

Hilderstone College is the first English school in my life where I can improve and practice my English. I took an Intensive English Course, 3 months each in 2013 and 2014. First time, I arrived in the UK I can’t understand and speak English, but Hilderstone College gave me more confidence when speaking English. Also, […]
