St Sidwell's Point


News - 30th Nov 2020

‘St Sidwell’s Point’ is Exeter’s new state-of-the-art leisure centre and will be the most energy efficient in the UK.

Opening in the Summer of 2021 it includes three pools which will have exceptional water quality, with minimal chemical content.

The landmark building also includes a gym and two fitness studios; health suite and spa facility; children’s soft play area and a café.

This environmentally friendly building is designed to save up to 70% on annual energy costs and heat generated from people exercising in the gym will help heat the pool.

We hope the pool and facilities will be enjoyed by yourselves, your students and the local community.


To celebrate this amazing building and to help raise awareness of different careers in its construction, we have created different resources that could be used as part of lessons or tutor groups:

1)      The ‘St Sidwell’s Point Education Pack’ which provides further information including: the project background, environmental benefits, healthy design, building biology and construction careers.

2)      14 Videos that showcase the leisure centre, taking you through the construction journey, featuring some of the people who have designed, built and delivered this amazing building, discussing their job roles. Including Architects, Building Physicist, Site Manager, Design Manager, Quantity Surveyor, Trades and Apprentices.

 The videos include a ten minute filmproviding an overview of St Sidwell’s Point, featuring some of the people who helped to design and build it, suitable for lessons and tutor groups, with individual videos providing more detail on each job role.
