As a college which has at its heart a commitment to working with the worldwide community to develop learning and opportunity for young people and adults, Bath Academy takes its social responsibility very seriously.
We work with organisations locally to support students through our CIFE scholarship programme. This has enabled us to offer a full-time language scholarship to a Syrian refugee in collaboration with Bath Welcomes Refugees and a tutorial scholarship to a student from a local comprehensive in partnership with the Young Carers Development Trust.
Our community involvement continues to expand as we participate in the famous Bath Boules each year, a fantastic annual event that brings together businesses, residents to raise money for several local charities in Bath. Furthermore, our new building on Chapel Row will host different community events as well as classes for our students.
In addition to these contributions to the wider community, our students are always eager to get involved with local and national charities, such as baking delicious home-made cakes for BBC Children in Need or creating activities for Sports Relief.
Our latest community charity project will take place this Christmas, with our students taking part as Student Elves, selling Remembrance Baubles to ‘Dress Dorothy’s Tree‘ in aid of Dorothy House Hospice. We believe involving our students in a compassionate charity project at this time of year will help to foster community spirit and promote volunteering skills so needed and valued across the world. Please help us in this endeavor by spreading awareness of this charitable cause.
