We catch up with Head of Admissions, Sam Hollingshead, ahead of a very busy period, to talk about how Bath Academy help students achieve higher grades, plans for September 2021, and what a typical admissions period looks like.
“It can be a confusing and stressful time, especially this year, and we are here to reassure students and parents by giving specialist advice in navigating their next steps..”
What does the typical ‘enrolment’ period look like at Bath Academy?
This year, given the difficulties students have endured, there are many with worries about centre assessed grades or the impact on progress made during their studies. We welcome students/parents to contact the college to discuss possible solutions at Bath Academy with myself or the Principal. As we do not have set times of the year set aside for prospective students to visit, our approach is ‘every day is an open day’ at the college.
How does Bath Academy help students who want […]
Following the most recent Government announcement and instructions, we can confirm that Bath Academy remains ‘open’ with staff continuing to operate onsite and remotely with a view to ensuring continuity of education, to answer any queries, and we continue to accept applications for both Academic and English courses.
We have been busy over the summer getting our college ready to welcome students for the new academic year. We have followed all required government guidelines, including the BSA Covid-Safe Charter (see below) for safety and social distancing within the college.
CONTINUITY OF EDUCATION
All our other courses including GCSE, A-LEVEL, RESIT, and UFP courses will start as normal for the new academic year with Student Registration on the 7th of September and classes commencing on the 14th of September. To see our full Academic Calendar click here.
International students studying English Courses will continue to have flexible start dates as courses will be held all year round with both face-to-face teaching and online options from the 24th of August.
WHAT TO DO IF…
What our students say is the best testimony to what we do at Bath Academy. They have first-hand experience of everything from course work, quality of teaching, college environment, student life, what studying in Bath is like, and so much more.
One of the best things about Bath Academy is the diverse group of students we have, from Bath, all over the UK, and internationally. Small though we are, we cover a huge spectrum of students needs and learning styles. Our personal approach provides a community atmosphere, and is what makes us different, and better for many reasons. Read on to find out why:
