Newbattle Abbey is a 700 year old Abbey that has been adapted into a college offering modern education facilities within a beautiful and historical location. Situated just 30 minutes bus ride from central Edinburgh in beautiful grounds, the building offers modern classroom, IT and dining facilities. The programme at Newbattle Abbey offers our standard English language tuition and excursions but also offers a little more insight into Scottish culture, tradition and heritage through a unique activity and cultural programme. Based from the abbey’s crypt and beautiful drawing room, Scottish themes are explored such as music, theatre, dress, history and culture, including opportunities to wear Highland dress including the kilt.
