Welcome to the Cambridge Assessment English site for Thanet Open Centre


COVID - 19: Update 16 June 2020

Although we have been unable to run exams for the past few months, we are now able to do so again with the necessary safety measures and procedures in place.

However, naturally the demand for exams at our centre has reduced for the moment as students are remaining in their home countries. Therefore, it is looking unlikely that we will be able to run the July sessions of B2 First (FCE) or C1 Advanced (CAE). Please contact the centre for more information on 01843 865899



Thanet Open Centre is based in Broadstairs, East Kent and has been running Cambridge Assessment English exams since the 1970's. 

We offer the main suite KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE exams as well as the KET, PET and FCE For Schools exams, and the YLE exams. 

Please note the dates listed are the ones normally required by local language schools.  However, we are able to run extra exams on dates offered by Cambridge Assessment English if there is the demand.  

We run several sessions of the For Schools exams each year.  Please call the Centre for details on 01843 865899.
