Family swims are back! These are fun swims for Hannah More children. We know the Saturday 6pm slot is not great for everybody, but it is the only time you can book the whole pool. Friends of Hannah More 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!  Under 8s must have a parent in the water with them. You can bring ONE older sibling (Year 7 or above) only. The guidelines are here...

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.
