Summer School 2019: Kesatuan Bangsa

This year at our Summer School, we had students from Kesatuan Bangsa Bilingual Boarding School. During their time here they have been on a journey around Yorkshire and the rest of the UK, all while receiving comprehensive English Language Lessons and Tutoring.

Here is a video of their time here:

Huddersfield Parish Church

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 traveling 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.

 

Student Debate: Pros and Cons of Same Sex Education

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.

Come and join in one of our lessons and learn English. Yorkshire English School is just opposite Huddersfield train station.

Huddersfield Train Station

Are you interested in the history of railway stations? Here in Huddersfield is the second busiest station in West Yorkshire “Huddersfield railway station”. It is across the road from Yorkshire English School (YES) where I enjoyed studying English.

The station was designed by the architect James Pigott Pritchett and built by the firm of Joseph Kaye between 1846–1850 in the neoclassical style. The station is well known in architectural circles for its classical-style facade, with a portico of the Corinthian order, consisting of six columns in width and two in depth, which dominates St George’s Square. The station frontage was described by John Betjeman as “the most splendid in England” and by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as “one of the best early railway stations in England”.

Two pubs are within the station frontage, to each side of the main entrance: The Head Of Steam and The King’s Head (previously known as The Station Tavern). Both facilities are accessible from Platform 1. At the building’s entrance, the booking office is to the left and to the right are the train timetables and a newsagent.

The station connects the following cities;Manchester and Liverpool in the North West and Newcastle and  Middlesbrough in the North East. Huddersfield railway station also connects to York, Scarborough and Hull via Leeds.
