Maidstone Adult Education Centre


St Faith’s Street has been associated with The Arts since classes started in 1867. The present-day St Faith’s centre was built in 1893.

The ground floor was occupied by the science classes and art classes were located on the first floor. Apart from a very large elementary art classroom, the studios for advanced art were all in the rear of the building and lit by large and lofty windows on the north side. Several famous artists have passed through St Faith’s including James Butler, Tony Hart, David Hockney and Ruskin Spear. This beautiful building provides a motivating backdrop to your studies.

Maidstone Adult Education centre will re-open on 14th September. We are continuing to review which services and courses can be delivered within a Covid-19 safe environment.
Please be aware that some courses attributed to this centre are still being delivered in a real time, online environment. Please check the location in the course description before enrolling to confirm where your course will be taking place.
Several changes have been made to the Maidstone Adult Education centre to make it Covid-19 secure.
- The installation of sanitiser stations
- New instructional signage
- The use of spatial surveys to ensure that social distancing can be maintained
- The installation of screens where appropriate
- The implementation of a test and trace system
