· New pool at Lodge Hill (now called
Montacute School Pool)
The pool is up and running
we look forward to seeing you for your
lesson tomorrow THURSDAY 14TH MAY
Please see map below and diagram of pool
The current entrance onto the Lodge Hill site will be closed off and will become the site access
for the builders only.
· You should enter via the current school entrance (just off the roundabout, by the yellow
box junction and traffic lights)
· There will be some allocated parking on site to pool users but spaces may be limited
(May to July). From September, phase 2 of the build programme will be complete and parking
should no longer be an issue.
On the map below, the area marked "Limited parking for pool users between 9.30 and 2.30"
should not be used until after 4pm. If you park in this area before 4pm you will have to wait
until all the children and minibus's have cleared the site before you will be able to leave.
· 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) opposite the current
entrance and a pedestrian crossing nearby. For the 10 weeks of this term this is probably a better
option especially for our earlier groups.
School finishes at 3.20pm so I can imagine there will be a lot of traffic in the car parks at this time.
· There will be signs up directing you to the pool entrance. Once you enter the site walk straight
ahead keeping to the left of all the buildings. You will see the new school and pool building, it is a
very high, brown, brick building. The pool is at the far end of this building.
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.
