This school was founded in 1947 by Kenneth Foster.

I came accross an account of how the school came into being and couldnt help but laugh at an early tale of urban exploring.
“Folkestone, Kent. in 1946 was just emerging from the war that had obliterated much of the town and surrounding area. Many buildings were either completely destroyed or badly damaged and rendered unihabitable. Some were battle-scarred and unloved, with broken windows, leaky roofs and overgrown gardens. Two such hapless victims of the bombing and general neglect were 54 and 56 Shorncliffe Road in Folkestone's West End.

Kenneth Foster, a Yorkshire born son of a worsted manufacturer, ex-General Strike Police Reservist, ARP Warden and schoolmaster, climbed through the broken window of the empty and semi-derelict building accompanied by his brother, Group Captain (RAF retired), Arthur Foster. What they found was not the rot of war, but the gem of an idea for a new schoolâ€￾.
