Earlscliffe is a private sixth form college during the academic year and offers an intimate, highly-personalised environment. It was built in 1870 and underwent complete renovation and refurbishment in 2012-14.

It is located in the desirable West End of Folkestone, within walking distance of the elegant Leas promenade, the high-speed train link to London St Pancras and the town centre’s shops.

The facilities

The main building, and each of the boarding houses, has a student common room with comfortable sofas, Sky television, games consoles and various indoor sporting facilities such as pool, snooker, table tennis and air hockey.

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided throughout the day for the students.

The food

Meals are taken in the college dining room and prepared by our own chef and team. Meals are varied and often international, such as Chinese, Mexican or Indian, but not forgetting the occasional British fish and chips! Formal dinners every two weeks give our students a chance to dress up and enjoy a three course meal by candlelight. Any special dietary needs can be catered for, i.e. vegetarian, non-dairy etc. Students are given packed meals on day trips.

The rooms

Most rooms are spacious twin or triple rooms with en-suite WC and shower. All rooms are Wi-Fi connected. The high standard of accommodation is attractive to today's students, and all the more so five the beautiful victorian facade of the buildings in which it sits.
