About Us

The Glasshouse Academy works with schools in Bath to raise aspirations and create opportunities for children. The first year will start with Years 5 and 6 and they will move up a year every 12 months, so that the second year will be a new Year 5 and Years 6 and 7. This will continue on to Year 13, so that there will be nine years in total when the original Year 5s (and eight years for the original Year 6s) will finish the academy experience.

“It’s all about being positive, team building and self-respect as well as respecting others”

- Matt Banahan, Academy Manager

Mark Gunning, Programme Director, leads the relationship with teachers and headteachers in a number of Bath schools and they have been working in collaboration to recognise and select the children that will most benefit from and contribute to the experience.
