Family swims were very popular in 2022 and we have already booked dates for this year.  We know the 6pm slot is not great for everybody, but it is the only time you can book the pool for your exclusive use. Friends pay £200 for each swim - we get grant funding to cover most of cost. And school staff kindly give up their time to help out! These Saturday swims are for Hannah More families only. Under 8s must have a parent in the water with them. Read the guidelines here.

2023 dates are: 13th and 20th May; 10th and 24th June; 8th and 15th July.

Our adult community history project linked to the SS Great Britain is researching ways to make this wonderful Bristol attraction more accessible for families and more relevant to our community. The community researchers also helped to bust some myths - did you know for example that the SS Great Britain was a passenger ship and a cargo boat - but never had any links to the slave trade (it was built a generation after!)?

The Hub

Our Hub library is open after school on Tuesdays and Fridays during term-time, for families to come and have a look or borrow a book.

Help and support


There are various Parenting courses running across the city; look out in the newsletter for dates.
