Our Senior Tutors oversee quality of teaching, curriculum development, and any teacher/student concern within their specialist field.
Liam Hocking – Humanities & Social Science
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 for Humanities and Social Science in September 2017. He has a particular interest in cinema, music and sport, and has been manager of the college football team for the last three years.
Andrew Hayes – Science and Math
Andrew has had over 30 years experience of teaching post-16 students in Chemistry and Biology. As the former Head of Science at a large Further Education College, he has extensive experience in preparing students for study at university, including acting as co-Director of Studies, examiner and moderator for the Foundation Course of a major UK university.
Andrew has worked on curriculum development to write science specifications and resources for a major university, exam board and academic organisation. He has also participated in international projects to develop science curricula in the EU, China and Japan. His skills extend to developing and teaching a successful programme of science-based study skills to facilitate reflective practice, critical thinking and problem solving to improve achievement.
As a fully qualified and experienced teacher of English as a Foreign Language, Andrew works closely with ESOL staff to support students in the acquisition of academic English in a scientific context.
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 wellbeing 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.”
