Teaching Assistant Folkestone Information

Situated on the Kent coast, Folkestone was once an important port in the 19th and 20th centuries. During the Edwardian era, it became a popular holiday destination for the English aristocracy.

You can still see this influence today in the architecture designed to please the gentry.

Although the port is still active, it has been superseded by nearby Dover, where ferries regularly travel across the English Channel. The Channel Tunnel in Folkestone is now the central travel hub to the continent.

There are several state and independent primary schools in the town. Secondary schools include state and independent, with an additional two selective state secondary schools – Folkestone School for Girls and the Harvey Grammar School for boys.
