Bath Academy

Whatever the outcome of your grades, there are always options

It’s been another challenging year for students with disruption to their education and exams. As an independent college, Bath Academy is committed to the continuation of education and giving students the best chance to reach their academic goals. 

To achieve this, the college will be offering flexible A-level Resit Courses from September which include valuable personal guidance, small teaching groups, and expert teachers. These courses are specially created for students who do not achieve the A-level grades they desire or require to progress to their first-choice university. 

Flexible A-Levels: 

With continued educational challenges, flexible programmes are more important than ever. With targeted teaching in small groups, the college is able to provide personalised tuition in a supportive environment with one year, two year, and 18-month courses available, as well as shorter, more intensive revision and ‘reset’ courses. 


“The informality of the school makes a difference, there are few restrictions, and we are treated more like an adult, independence is encouraged.”
