The City

Bath is one of the most interesting, cosmopolitan and vibrant cities in the UK. It is also on UNESCO's World Heritage List and is a popular tourist destination, due to its Roman and Georgian history. The city is known particularly for its beautiful Georgian architecture and natural hot springs.

Bath is also a lively and cosmopolitan city, offering great shopping and a wide selection of cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs. It also has two cinemas and three theatres. As a small city, it is easy to find your way around. Visit Bath has more information on what the city has to offer and The Pig Guide offers a friendly going out / restaurant guide for Bath. The Bath Leap List also promotes student-friendly events in and around the city.

There are many ways you can get involved in the School’s community including joining our Events Committees and helping to organise events, the Conversation Club which meets each week which enables students to improve their English in an informal environment or the School’s student and staff football and basketball teams.
