Partis College

Welcome to Partis

That's something we've been saying for almost 200 years to hundreds of women who, for one reason or another, have come to live at our almshouses in Bath.

For older ladies living on a low income and in need of a safe and affordable home, Partis provides quality accommodation in beautiful and spacious grounds in Newbridge.
Founded by Mrs Ann Partis, an enlightened Victorian benefactor, to help Christian gentlewomen in challenging personal circumstances, it's fair to say that life may have changed since the 1800s, but the need for support has not.
As a registered charity, we have picked up her baton and continue to offer almshouses to those who have faced difficulty, often through bereavement, divorce or retirement.
The Partis of today has its roots firmly planted in its past - and its sights set firmly on the future. The overall ethos and spirit is as relevant now as it was all those years ago.
"As Patron of the Almshouse Association, I am fully aware from my own experience… of the marvellous sense of community,
well-being and independence that are the hallmarks of the almshouse movement."
