Student Journeys

Each student’s journey is unique and personal to them. We’ve had the joy of seeing our students go on to graduate from university, some doing their Masters, and many on to successful careers. We are happy to be part of their academic journey and help set the foundation for these successes.


Eli – One Year A-Level Student

Ellie took her second year of A-Level with us following a very successful set of GCSEs at a previous school. She then went on to receive a place studying History of Art at University of Edinburgh and is currently a Creative Brand Strategist, Digital Marketer and Freelance writer.

“Thank you so much for all of your help across the year. I loved my time at Bath Academy and am so grateful to have been challenged in such a nurturing environment. I am very relieved to have my place at Edinburgh confirmed, a result of your constant support.”

Eli’s art piece was in the final at Studio 44AD’s ‘The Art of Communication in the Commonwealth’ prize exhibition. Her piece was created in response to this year’s theme and is entitled ‘Discommunication in the Commonwealth’:

Eli says, “The piece centres around the protests regarding the Brunei law that dictated gay marriage illegal and called for stoning to death as a punishment for those accused. The idea of ‘discommunication’ stems from the fact that countries such as Brunei and the United Kingdom are united by their place within the commonwealth and yet remain so divided on human rights issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, leaving members of the community within countries like Brunei feeling erased, unrepresented and criminalised for being who they are. The image used for reference was taken at one of these marches, with the text ‘stone one of us, face all of us’ being extracted from the sign the protestor was holding at the time.”

Hannah – One Year A-Level Student

Hannah was studying at a previous school but was disappointed with her A-Level results. She came to Bath Academy in 2019 to resit French and Maths alongside a vigorous netball training schedule at the University of Bath. Her hard work and determination paid off and she attained a place at Bath University studying Criminology as well as being selected for the England U21 Netball Squad for 2021. She continues to be an elite athlete on the Bath Superleague Team as well as a Research Assistant at the National Crime Agency whilst she completes her degree.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bath Academy and I wouldn’t have my place at Bath Uni and two A grades without it! I am so impressed with all the teachers’ commitment to their students and even to their subjects! I cannot thank you all enough!”

Katie Aitchison – One-Year A-Level Student

Former A-Level student Katie went on to gain a place at University of Bristol and graduated with a Masters in Physiological Science. Katie then went on to work at Imperial College London as a Research Technician, and is now studying a Masters in Physician Associate Studies at St. George’s in London! Katie’s student journey proves that there is no limit to what you can achieve if you apply yourself with perseverance and dedication.

“Taking a few A-Level modules at Bath Academy enabled me to get into Bristol uni, and doing the Masters course there has helped me get this job at Imperial, and also get into St George’s in London to study Physician Associate Studies Masters”.

Erin – A-Level Student

Erin studied an intensive A-Level course with us in 2015-2016 which landed her a place studying Law at Cardiff University, and has recently graduated with a Masters of Law.

Logan’s attitude to his studies and support from the subject tutors resulted in him achieving AAB and gaining a place at University of Liverpool to study Business & Economics.

She took the decision to join Sixth Form at Bath Academy to ensure her full potential was achieved. Eveney’s efforts in her studies were commendable and she overcame challenges to her mental health due to external difficulties, giving her confidence and a solid foundation to join The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art after her gap year.

Arthur – One-Year A-Level Resit Student

Arthur previously studied A Levels at an Independent School in Salisbury. He came to Bath Academy to retake two A Levels in one year and achieved a six-grade improvement. This was possible due to the small class sizes, supportive environment, and regular exposure to examination conditions with Formative Assessments. Arthur was also a Boarding student where he grew in self-confidence and flourished and has gone to University of Durham to study Mathematics.


Kitty – GCSE student

Kitty studied with us from 2018-2020, before moving on to Bath College to study International Business. She is now working in London in the film industry, dealing with lighting and prop hire for movies and tv shows.

It’s a really beautiful and vibrant city with lots of bars and coffee shops.”
