Bath Academy is an independent college and language school that specialises in a personalised, tailored education. 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. Students from different backgrounds and various cultures continue to carve out their individual academic journey with us and progress beyond our expectations.
We can provide both individual or group tuition during term time and throughout the holiday periods. We hold regular revision courses and for Summer 2020 will be offering group sessions for students to get ahead in A Level subjects.
Starting in June 2020, we are offering A-Level Preparation Courses online, specialising in STEM subjects (Maths, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics).Parents and students have requested that we offer courses for those who are missing over a term of education due to COVID-19, especially Year 11’s progressing to A-Levels in September. Other subjects are also available
As Bath’s only independent college to offer both academic and English Language courses, 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.
With tailored teaching and support, we give students the best chance to apply successfully to high quality universities. With passionate teachers and caring staff, we especially excel with students who are faced with extra challenges, whether it is students facing personal adversities during these crucial academic years, students with learning disabilities who are more comfortable in a smaller class or one-to-one tuition, or international students coping with studying in a foreign country.
The success of our students in gaining places on their chosen courses, many at high ranking universities, is the best testament to our teaching approach. The experience of our students has been that, with personalised teaching and effective support, young people from every realm have been able to progress to excellent university courses leading to successful professional careers.
We guarantee small classes – no bigger than 16 children in the main school and nine per class in Reception. We believe that this is integral to children establishing strong relationships with their teacher, getting the support they need, developing a strong work ethic and both maximising and achieving their potential.
Classes are made up of children from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, but the one thing they have in common is motivation. We do not compare children with one another; we challenge them against their own goals and next steps. This allows children to feel safe, be creative and be curious instead of managing anxiety about ‘not keeping up’. Happy, confident students are available to learn – they develop a rich and positive sense of who they are and can be.
Each class has a name:
Sprites (Reception) Pegasus (Year 1) Dragons (Year 2) Unicorns (Year 3) Griffins (Year 4) Minotaurs (Year 5) Centaurs (Year 6) Chalkers (Years 7-9)
