Central Language School, Cambridge was started by Christians in 1996 and recently celebrated its 20 years at a service in St Andrew's Street Baptist Church. At the ceremony, there were many different groups of people including students and staff (past and present), host families, members of the church, principals from other schools, present Trustees and other friends of the school who were treated to cake and tea.
The guest speaker was Mr Bartow Wylie from Friends International who was instrumental in setting up the school. There were also prayers, readings, songs and a talk from the Principal, Joanne Venter, on the daily life of the school.
British Council Accredited, small, with classes never more than 10, Central language School is, as its name suggests, very central and has already welcomed about 90 different nationalities of all faiths and none. It is known for its family atmosphere and care which goes beyond the classroom.
