It is a pleasure as the original founder and present principal of the Canterbury School to introduce you to this informative brochure. Since it first opened in 1972, I have seen the school grow from a small kindergarten with seventeen pupils in a chalet in the Garden City into a large organization which has gradually established itself as one of the leading schools in Las Palmas with more than a thousand pupils on roll and a full time teaching staff of over 80. Our emphasis has always been on excellence and quality. Our aim is to provide the best possible education for our children to prepare them to take their place in the world as responsible, informed and culturally aware citizens. We trust you will find the description of the different School Departments on this web site both interesting and instructive and you are warmly invited to visit us and look around. In this way you will be able to decide for yourself whether the general atmosphere within the school and the installations themselves offer the best opportunities for your child’s educational development. Choosing the right school for your child is, as a parent, one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make.
