Cleveland Pools

Hidden away in Bathwick, on the banks of the River Avon, is the country’s only surviving Georgian lido.

On Wednesday 7th May, Year 7 visited the currently unused open air Lido, otherwise known as the Cleveland Pools, as part of their Enrichment Programme. For any parents that don’t know, Bath had an open-air swimming pool from the Victorian times until it was closed about 40 years ago.

The Cleveland Trust are working tirelessly to raise enough money to get the pools renovated and re-opened for public use. Our Year 7s listened to a talk about the history of the pools and then participated in some creative activities including origami and also undertook a bit of weeding and clearing of the site. The weather stayed dry for us and the Bath Chronicle came and took some photos so look out for that in the Chronicle!

On the Tuesday in half term, the Cleveland Trust have organised a Fun Day so please go down and take a look for yourselves. To get involve with the project, please visit their website for more details.
