Head of School's Welcome,

Welcome to Rutland!


For more than forty years I have been an English teacher, and I enjoy it as much today as I did when I started all those years ago. Here at Rutland, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer an affordable and professional learning experience.


All of our lessons are tailored to suite your ability, and are designed to ensure that you get the most out of your time here with us.


We believe that your stay here is as important as your education and so we take great care in finding pleasant accommodation for you, mainly with nearby host families, who offer a warm and friendly place for you to practice your conversation skills.

Our personal approach is something that we've maintained over the years, and as such, we have a high rate of returning students, and remain great friends with a number of our ex-students.


We hope to welcome you to our school soon.



Colin Spear
​Head of School

Our Philosophy

Our aim at Rutland School is not only to teach English, but also to provide you with a warm, friendly atmosphere in which to learn. We believe that a happy person will learn more quickly and efficiently, so we'll welcome you with a smile and help you to settle down as quickly as possible.

Our History

Rutland School of English is located on the coast of north-east Kent, near the popular holiday town of Margate. The School was opened in May, 1959 for the sole purpose of teaching the English language to people of all ages and from all over the world, and we're still doing the same today.
