Learn & have fun. Wide range of events. Student-led choices.
Bath Academy’s Social Activities Programme includes a wide range of fun and stimulating activities designed to suit all tastes; from paint-balling to afternoon tea, kayaking to Quiz nights, the Academy’s social calendar is created to appeal to varied student interests and ages. Our Social Programme changes each year, with different parties, sports activities, and weekend excursions, to give students the opportunity to meet new people, build their confidence, and enjoy their life as a student in Bath.
Our Social Programme Team sends out a student survey at the beginning of each year to see what interests the students have, as they do vary from year to year! The programme is therefore ‘student-led’ and changes each term as it is designed to appeal to each student cohort. A list of monthly activities is posted on the student notice board, on social media, and can also be found in our Student Newsletter.
Alongside our social activities, Bath Academy will be running an extensive Student Development Programme focusing on charity projects, teamwork and leadership opportunities, work experience, and many other ways to help our students develop not only academically, but personally as well. Our objective is to put some more fun into our students’ learning experience whilst offering opportunities to learn more about themselves, develop new skills, make new relationships, focus on their future and contribute to the school and wider community.
All students are encouraged to take part as we believe it is an ideal opportunity to continue learning outside of the classroom, and the chance to integrate with our diverse mix of students and staff.
We are always happy to hear ideas from students about activities they would like us to organise. Please speak to any of our staff with your ideas. Please click here to see all our upcoming events.
Class of 2020
It’s been quite the year for everyone, with everything being cancelled or postponed as soon as Covid-19 arrived. Like many other students across the country, our students from last year not only missed out on exams, but many things including our Annual Summer Ball held in May.
However, we were able to host an Online Virtual Celebration where the students and teachers had an opportunity to interact all together and say a few words, and a few prizes were handed out. It was a tad emotional to say the least!
A Covid-Safe Social Programme for 2020 – 2021
As the pandemic continues, this year is starting a bit differently with regards to our social programme, but we are still determined to make it as fun, interesting, interactive, engaging, relevant, Covid-safe, socially-distanced, and non-pressurised as before! We will offer as many activities as we can both online and in-person so no one misses out, always adhering to current government rules and regulations, as the safety of our students is paramount. We will also endeavour to do more outside activities when possible, or choose venues that are spacious and safe for our students.
We encourage our students to embrace this new world of blended face-to-face/online activities, and ask them to give us any feedback or suggestions as we navigate this new way of interacting together.
