In the heart of Huddersfield town centre, just behind the Yorkshire English School, you will find St Peter’s Church.
St Peter’s Church, also known as Huddersfield Parish Church, has a long history which goes back to the 11th century when Walter de Lacy was travelling by horse between Huddersfield and Halifax. He was thrown from his horse into a swampy marsh and fearing for his life, he vowed that if he were spared, he would establish a church at Huddersfield. Walter lived and kept his promise and the church was built around 1090-1100.
The first Church was a small edifice in the Norman style and was consecrated by the then Bishop of Negroponte. During the years 1503 – 1506 the church had been rebuilt in the ‘Perpendicular’ style. The Parish Church had at least two chantry chapels possibly at some distance from the church.
Situated in the crypt of St Peter’s, you can enjoy The Keys Restaurant/Coffee House – a quirky venue with great food and a lovely atmosphere! There is an outstanding catering service which is managed by their Michelin star trained head chef, Paul Ellis.
We encourage our students to debate various topics to help them improve their English. Debating is a good way to learn and practice English which improves students’ confidence and presentation skills.
Learning English can be fun and easy with interactive activities, debates, and games. Our teachers use various techniques to improve the practical English skills of students.
