We first opened as Celtic School in 2004 and have been welcoming students from all over the world since then. This means we have a lot of expertise in providing students with a quality study experience. Our excellent core teaching team is complemented by our academic and office support teams. These teams ensure the smooth day-to-day running of our friendly and welcoming English academy.
