Wellbeing & Personal Support

At Bath Academy, we realise that students’ mental health and wellbeing is more important than ever. All staff, personal tutors, teachers, and boarding house staff are available for students to speak to if they wish, as well as an Independent Listener if they would rather talk to someone outside the college. Students are encouraged to ask questions throughout their time at the college.

Student wellbeing is of the highest priority to ensure our students’ happiness and fulfilled ambitions. We want our students to feel secure in the knowledge that they are valued members of a community that receives encouragement, guidance, and support.

“I would like to say a special thank you to everyone for being so welcoming to our son, you have all made a huge difference in his attitude, studies and mental health.”
