Bath Academy is a small independent college located at the centre of the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath, a vibrant university town that is not only considered one of the safest in the UK, it is also full of culture and history with much to offer students both socially and academically.
Recently named one of the top performing schools in Bath for value-added progress in A-Levels, Bath Academy specialises in personalised tuition with an interactive teaching approach. We offer tutorial support in both Academic and English Language courses to match individual needs of students, helping them to achieve their academic potential in any direction they may choose.
As Bath's only independent college to offer both academic and English Language courses, and the only school in the southwest UK to offer retakes, we provide unique opportunities to both local and international students looking for a school that takes their individual needs into consideration, and are able to provide achievable, alternative academic routes to higher education.
We offer a range of A-Level and GCSE courses, topic-specific revision courses, a University Foundation Programme, and English courses (General English, Academic English, IELTS preparation, and Junior Summer Schools).
With the help of their personal tutor, students are supported within their personal development; by learning to study at an advanced level in an international community of colleagues, and with making informed decisions about future careers. We especially excel with students who are faced with extra challenges, whether they are facing personal adversities, have learning disabilities, more comfortable in a smaller class or one-to-one tuition, or international students coping with studying in a foreign country.
With tailored teaching and support, we give students the best chance to apply successfully to high quality universities, with over 75% gaining places at Russell Group Universities.
The college offers a varied programme of activities including themed parties, cultural excursions, and day trips on the weekend, giving students the opportunity to meet new people, build their confidence, and enjoy their life in Bath and surrounding areas.
Student accommodation is available in one of our two boarding houses, a short walk away from our two college locations at Queen Square and Chapel Row. Our qualified houseparents also act as house tutors to ensure all students are in a safe and supportive environment.
