Senior Tutors

Liam Hocking – Teaching & Learning 

Liam embarked on a career in teaching after switching from a previous role as a research and policy analyst in London. Gaining experience from Truro College in Cornwall, Liam specialises in the social and political sciences and is also an exam marker for Psychology and Politics. He has taught a number of different subjects during his time at Bath Academy, assisting both home and international students to achieve results at GCSE and A-Level, and through to the University Foundation Programme.

Liam was appointed the role of Senior Tutor in September 2017. In this role, Liam is responsible for the professional development of a small team of teachers at Bath Academy. He has a particular interest in cinema, music and sport, and has been manager of the college football team for the last three years.


Anna Manley – Pastoral Care

“I have been teaching English in the South West for over ten years, almost entirely within the private sector, and spent six of these years as a Housemistress at a large private school in Taunton, Somerset. During my time here I was responsible for the care and well-being of over 100 girls (both boarders and day pupils) aged between 13 and 18. I have always maintained that effective pastoral care provides the secure foundation which young adults need in order to learn successfully. My role as Senior Tutor (Pastoral) at Bath Academy is to develop the tutoring programme, as well as the broader pastoral responsibilities of the school, to ensure that each individual pupil feels they have the support, respect and opportunities they need to reach their full potential.”




Andrew Hayes – Academic Enrichment

Andrew’s role is to develop a programme of academic enrichment for our students. In September 2020, Andrew will be launching a programme of enrichment which will include collaboration with UK university academics and organising a regular series of lectures to be held at the academy.
