Our Journey Begins

We first opened as Celtic School in 2004 and our current CEO, Shoko, was one of our first students! We first became accredited by the British Council in 2008. We finished the decade by opening our main building on Park Grove in 2009.

A New Name

We said "goodbye" to Celtic School and "hello" to Celtic English Academy as we changed our name. Our student numbers continued to increase so we opened our third building. At the end of the year, our Business English Courses started.
