Welcome to Canterbury School

As founder and Honorary Principal of Canterbury School, it is a great honour for me to present this informative website for the school. Since it first opened in 1972, I have seen the school grow from a small kindergarten with seventeen pupils in a chalet in the Ciudad Jardin into a large organization consolidated as one of the best educational centres in the Canary Islands Autonomous Community, with more than a thousand students and eighty qualified teachers.
