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.

In light of the Government's recent announcement regarding the national lockdown, we have made the decision to close our adult education centres, at close of business on 5th January 2021. Where possible, our courses will transfer to a real time and online environment. A member of our Customer Relations team will contact you, if you are enrolled on a course which is now being delivered online. Our current online courses will continue as planned. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
