With support from the Gaelic Language Act Implementation Fund (GLAIF) and Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Newbattle has been celebrating and promoting Gaelic language and culture for several years and we continue to do so.

 Celtic Studies

We have reviewed the delivery of our NC Celtic Studies with Gaelic courses and will not be offering these courses in the Academic Year September 20 – June 21. We have however integrated the Celtic Culture and historical element of this programme into the Access to Higher Education (SWAP) course as an optional branch.
