· New pool at Lodge Hill (now called
Montacute School Pool)
latest information about parking 17/09/15
As from NEXT MONDAY our access onto our site will be changing.
Parents, Staff, POOL USERS and other visitors will park in our
new parking areas which will be accessed by the OTHER
ENTRANCE INTO THE SCHOOL (that used to be the Lodge Hill Pool
entrance, opposite Plantation Road). We have designated a
temporary area to pool users nearest the entrance from the
road – first parking on right as you enter the site - but this
may change once we have our whole site completed!
Please be patient, and remember the 5mph speed limit on our
site at all times! Take particular care at the new entrance to the
site – as pedestrians may be there too!
As part of ensuring all work can be finished, the area in front
of the pool entrance and the school entrance will need to be
completed during our usual working week at some point in the
near future. The best plan we can find will be made for this, but
please bear with us if you arrive at school and find the
arrangements for entering the building have been slightly
altered – and help us to keep school and pool running smoothly!
It will be worth it in the end!
Thank you for all of your support and patience this far.
Please see diagram of pool layout.
· We would recommend that you allow extra time to arrive for your sessions in case you need to
park off site. I would allow at least 10 minutes extra.
· There are parking opportunities in the residential area (Plantation Road).
There is a separate entrance for pool users, you do not have to go into the school reception.
On the layout of the pool and changing rooms (below), you will see you first enter into the lobby
(there is a post outside the door with a button to open the door). Please remove shoes or use
overshoes as before.
The room that says "accessible changing" on the diagram we will use as a family changing area.
Between this room and the boy's changing room are a toilet cubicle, a private changing cubicle and
a shower. There are 3 more showers just before you go onto poolside. Please do not go into the
"wet bed" and "hot pool" entrance to the pool.
We would like to apologise if you experience difficulties during this period but please be assured
that these temporary arrangements are being well planned to minimise disruption as much as
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
