Junior Summer Programme Partners

Our Junior Summer Programme wouldn’t be possible without the exceptional facilities and activities provided by our programme partners:

  • The Urdd Residential Centre

  • Cardiff Riding School

  • Cardiff International White Water Centre

The Urdd Residential Centre, Cardiff Bay

Situated in the heart of the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay, the Urdd Residence is a year round Welsh Language Residential facility that Celtic English Academy move into during the months of July and August to deliver our Junior Summer Programme.

As the centre is purpose-built and set up to welcome primary and secondary school students during the academic year for language and activity stays, we can’t fault the services, facilities, accommodation and support staff that the Urdd Residence provide for Celtic during the summer.

Some testimonials from the centre include:

“ The food was brilliant and the rooms were lovely ”

Celtic English Academy has established a partnership with Cardiff Riding School, set in 35 acres of parkland close to the city centre, to be able to provide horse riding lessons for enthusiasts, or beginners, on our General English + Horse Riding summer programme.

Cardiff Riding School has been running since 1970 and has an excellent team of friendly and qualified staff. The centre is child and adult friendly, welcoming riders from 4 years +. There are outdoor and indoor arenas as well as cross country facilities. There are 40 horses and ponies at the centre so groups or individual students can all join in with this exciting activity!
