The Academy has two residential houses, which offer full-board accommodation for students 14+ years of age – one designated for boys and one for girls. Both houses are within 10 minutes’ walk from the school and city centre, and have resident members of staff to ensure students’ safety, happiness and progress.
Both houses have single and shared rooms which are allocated on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis. The bedrooms are well furnished, centrally heated and are cleaned each week, including bed linen. All houses are non-smoking.
Bath Academy arranges accommodation in Bath with caring and responsible homestay providers. Living in homestay accommodation, students are able to learn more about British customs and traditions, and gain additional conversational practice.
Our Accommodation Officer chooses homestays very carefully; they are visited and interviewed in order to ensure that they satisfy our criteria. We always aim to select homestays who are genuinely interested in learning more about different cultures.
Students have their own room which includes a bed, wardrobe space and space for studying. In most cases students will share a bathroom with the homestay provider. It is possible to request executive rooms which guarantee en-suite facilities but these are subject to availability.
All homestay accommodation is located within the city of Bath and can be reached either by walking or public transport. Some homestays are a short walk from the college but most can be reached within 20 minutes on public transport.
Homestay accommodation is full board (breakfast, packed lunch and dinner) with normal laundry requirements). If students have any medical or dietary requirements it is important to note this on the application form so we can make the necessary arrangements.
Living with a homestay provider is a wonderful experience that most students treasure for the rest of their lives. Students often remain friends with their homestays for many years.
