*LATEST UPDATE – 20/03/20
Following the Government announcement and instructions on 18th March we can confirm that:
We have brought forward our Easter Holidays by one week, so all Bath Academy students will be on holiday from the end of classes today;
The summer term will begin on Tuesday, 14th April; if classroom-based teaching continues to be suspended, although the buildings will not be open for lessons, Bath Academy remains open and staff will continue to operate on-site and remotely with a view to ensuring continuity of education and to answer any queries.
Continuity of Education:
If classroom-based teaching continues to be suspended, then Bath Academy students will move to our online learning platforms until the restriction is lifted;
Teaching will continue via ‘Showbie’, our paperless classroom, as well as Microsoft Teams, until further notice. All students, teachers, and staff are prepared to move to this platform with immediate effect, and have been given all the required information to ensure it is used correctly and efficiently.
Bath Academy plans to light up Queen Square this winter and add some sparkly festive cheer with a very large and beautiful Christmas tree in our front courtyard. More than just a decorative tree, it will be a ‘Remembrance Tree’ managed by our very own Student Elves who will be looking for help to decorate it in a special way for a special cause.
As we head into the Christmas period, it is more important than ever to remember our loved ones, to celebrate their life or acknowledge those going through difficult times. Similar to Dorothy House’s ‘Light up a Life’ campaign where a candle on a tree is lit for a loved one at Christmas time, Bath Academy’s project – ‘Dress Dorothy’s Tree’ – will have the same sentiment but using symbolic baubles instead of candles to decorate the tree.
Taking place during Bath’s busy Christmas market, we are hoping to attract market-goers to our Christmas display where they can purchase a Bath […]

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:
Will – One Year A Level Student
“The informality of the school makes a difference, there are few restrictions, and we are treated more like an adult, independence is encouraged.”– Will – One Year A Level Student
“My teacher’s lessons on the French Revolution were some of the most enjoyable I experienced at any level of education, and the broader-curricular […]
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!

Each year CIFE hosts an inter-college quiz in London, and every year Bath Academy sends a team of clever students to participate. The questions test teams across a wide range of subjects. This year our international team included Maddie, Will, Oma, Luke, and Olga who came in 6th overall for a great result!
Our international students had the honor of attending a Civic Reception held at the historical Pump Rooms in Bath at the end of November. Hosted by the Mayor of Bath, this annual reception is organised especially to welcome students from abroad.
Each student was personally welcomed by the Mayor of Bath, followed by a drinks reception and inspiring speech from the Mayor himself.
“What you are experiencing is a renaissance of Bath as a university city. As international students and very welcome guests of this city, it gives me tremendous confidence in what you will take away and what you’ll give to society. It’s only through international cooperation and collaboration that we really understand how we need to look after the earth. If we really understand how we need to look out for the earth, if the environment is going to continue to nurture us as we want it to, we have to look after it in turn.”
