Latest deal for Canterbury’s King’s School is aimed at overseas students
Plans for an international school by Walters & Cohen in Kent have been given the green light by Canterbury council.
The scheme on the city’s Malthouse Road will teach students aged 11-16, acting as a stepping stone for those entering the English school system from abroad.
It will be part of the existing King’s School – the £36,000 a year private school which sits in the shadow of Canterbury Cathedral and where the practice recently completed work building new boarding accommodation.
The new building for the overseas students will run across three storeys and provide boarding and teaching accommodation for up to 80 students. It will also include a flood-lit sports court with changing rooms, a terrace of five two-bedroom houses for staff, a single three-bedroom house and a design for a civic square.
Work is due to be completed next summer.
