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?

Exams are finally over for our academic students! It’s been a stressful few weeks of revising and then the exams themselves, but our students made it through with confidence and determination, and we couldn’t be more proud of them.
Now it’s time for our academic students to take a well-deserved break and to welcome our international students for Junior Summer School! Each year we have lovely students join us from all over the world to learn English, visit Bath, and explore all the beautiful and historical places we have in the southwest UK. Once again we’re hosting a second Junior Summer School at Milton Abbey in Dorset, and it’s promising to be even bigger and better than last year. It’s going to be a great summer!
