We believe that a comfortable, clean and caring place to stay whilst students study is extremely important. Therefore we provide high standard accommodation for students to make the most of their time with us.
Bath Academy arranges accommodation in Bath with caring and responsible homestay providers. Living in homestay accommodation, students are able to learn more about British customs and traditions, and gain additional conversational practice.
Our Accommodation Officer chooses homestay providers very carefully; they are visited and interviewed in order to ensure that they satisfy our criteria. We always aim to select host families who are genuinely interested in learning more about different cultures.
Students have their own room which includes a bed, wardrobe space and space for studying. In most cases students will share a bathroom with the homestay provider. It is possible to request ensuite facilities but these are subject to availability.
Homestay accommodation is full board (breakfast, packed lunch and dinner) and includes normal laundry requirements. If students have any medical or dietary requirements it is important to note this on the application form so we can make the necessary arrangements. Living with a homestay provider is a wonderful experience that most students treasure for the rest of their lives. Students often remain friends with their host families for many years.
Student Residential House
For long-term students, and over the summer months, accommodation may be available in our college residences. The Academy has two residential houses, which offer full board accommodation for students who are 14+ years of age – one designated for boys and one for girls. Both houses are within 10 minutes’ walk from the school and city centre, and have resident members of staff to ensure students’ safety, happiness and progress.
Both houses have single and shared rooms which are allocated on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis. The bedrooms are well furnished, centrally heated and are cleaned each week, including new bed linen. All houses are non-smoking.
