MBA vs St Peters
The Year 7 boys were on the road again as they travelled to St Peter’s for a Friday evening game.
MBA boys got off to a positive start, making some important tackles and showing some strong positions in defence. The side St Peters played was by far their strongest and it wasn't long before they broke the dead lock.
We showed some excellent technique in the scrum and line outs, securing valuable possession of the ball for Millbrook. This positively developed into some good territory for us and after spending 10 minutes in the St Peters 22 we finally put some points on the board through a try by Josh Gilkes.
The year 7's have got 6 fixtures booked in for after Christmas when the light improves so it's important the boys continue to train. Congratulations on a good effort and we wish them all the best for the future matches.
The Year 7 boys were joined by three Year 8 students and participated in a tournament which was designed for Year 8s. They did very well in holding their own against some larger students from St Peter’s and Sir Thomas Rich's.
MBA boys took part in a total of four games playing both schools twice. During the first game the boys challenged St Peters all the way and showed some great flare to draw 7-7. They then played Sir Thomas Rich's school with little break and unfortunately lost, mainly due to tiredness. After a break the boys narrowly lost to St Peters 14-5, however they saved the best to last when they ran out 28-0 winners in their final game against Sir Thomas Rich's school. Some great tries from Aflie Williams, Jacob Harris and consistent kicking from Josh Locke ensured the tournament ended on a positive note for the lads. Most Valuable Player (MVA) of the tournament went to Millbrook's Josh Butt who was superb in not missing a tackle and at times putting some big hits in.
The boys will have additional games before and after Christmas so we wish them all the best for these. It is also really important training is attended fully so the boys can reach their full potential. New players welcomed.
We would also like to thank the parent/carers who came along to support the boys playing, it was great to have the encouragement.

Millbrook Athletic Achievement
A small but dedicated team of athletes from Millbrook were in action at Crypt School for the Gloucester District Athletics. All the athletes were pushed to their limits by some very good competitors. However some superb performances were seen from the Millbrook athletes.
Jordan Stevens of year 8 won the Junior Boys 300m in a time of 42.0 seconds, a fantastic performance considering he was competing against many boys from year 9. Callum Newman of year 9 came 1st in the Junior Boys 100m event in a fantastic time of 11.21 seconds . Ed Bogue was our star thrower of the day coming 2nd in both the Junior Boys Discus (26.06m) and Shot Put (11.28m). In the Inter Boys High Jump Dan Sweet was the stand out performer coming 1st with a PB clearance of 1.60m. Representing the girls success were Paulina Zwieszkowska and Cheyanne Jones who came joint first in the Inter Girls Long Jump with a distance of 3.85m.
All the athletes mentioned above are now in line to represent Gloucester District in the County Games and we wish them every success going forward.
The county championships saw Daniel Sweet, Ed Bogue and Callum Newman all head off to try and gain representation for Gloucestershire. A sunny day with many participants saw the Prince of Wales Stadium come alive with competition and our students rose to the challenge. Ed Bogue headed out for the shot put and put in a valiant throw. He finished 2nd in the year 9 boys, but sadly despite being second in the county, his distance didn’t allow selection for the country championship.
Daniel Sweet had a difficult competition with no-one to compete against in the U17 group for High Jump. He flew over his first 2 heights, and as the bar raised to 1.60m he had two fails in quick succession. He gave himself some time, and allowed the wind to stop swirling, but he was unable to match his district height of 1.60m. On a positive note, the county selectors could see potential and he was granted a place on the coach to Exeter.
Callum Newman was unable to compete on the day, but we are very proud of the opportunity he was given to get this far. Fingers crossed for his excellence to be identified again next year.
Gloucester Schools Sports Partnership offered the opportunity for schools to have some free Archery coaching of which we were selected. Students were chosen from year 10 and 11 to experience this, and we were lucky to have Chloe Tucker, an experienced archer amongst the group to support as with gaining the skills required to go into the shoot off with Barnwood Park and Gloucester Academy.
Over the 6 weeks students got to grips with the technique and skill required to hit the gold target and the high points. They committed to lunchtimes and showed a great determination to do well. The shoot off saw a very reduced team compete to get the highest average score to be compared against Gloucester Academy and Barnwood. Some excellent shooting from Lewis Fogg, Rachel Robinson and Keaton Pearce helped our overall score to remain high.
The score came in on the following and final week of the sessions – we had won and were going to the Gloucestershire School Games as the team representing Gloucester. A very proud moment, and would allow a different level of competition – particularly as it would be outdoors, something we would not be used to.
On Saturday 15th June we travelled to a very wet, windy Hartpury and into a situation we were unfamiliar with. A number of other competing regions had many talented archers, and this would be the mental aspect our team would need to overcome. With some talking to from Chloe and Paige Tucker, they settled into the warm up, and experienced just how different the shooting conditions would be.
Our first detail saw us finish second, but with a lack of concentration and nerves, our place began to fall to 5th. We headed into the bronze medal match on a fresh start, but the lack of an archer meant we could only manage 5th again.
A great day with some fantastic students.
Well done to Rachel Robinson, Cheyanne Jones, Ryan West, Jack Holmes, Michaela Barry and a big well done and thank you to Chloe Tucker, Paige Tucker and Sophie Tucker (honoury Millbrook student for the day).
Chloe and Paige were also competing in the individual recurve competition. This meant that they had to shoot at a much smaller target. Chloe scored a total of 201 from 12 arrows and finished 3rd and Paige scored 95 and 15th. Well done girls, it was a pleasure to see you in action.
(The full team for all the sessions - Rachel Robinson, Cheyanne Jones, Ryan West, Jack Holmes, Michaela Barry, Daniel Sweet, Lewis Fogg, Keaton Pearce, Sophie Davis, Will Brown, Star Smith, Chloe Tucker, Faith Crawshaw.)

Millbrook Academy Primary Summer Sports Festival 2012
On Friday 13th July Millbrook Academy hosted its inaugural Summer Sports Festival for local primary schools. The event was organised and run by sixth form students studying towards their Level 3 BTEC Sport qualification.
Two separate tournaments were held in Kwick Cricket and Rounders with the scores from both events counting towards the overall standing.
Teams from Coopers Edge, Castle Hill and Brockworth Primaries arrived under glorious sunshine for what promised to be a fun afternoon. Whilst not involved in matches students were treated to mini coaching sessions provided by the Millbrook Academy students aimed at honing the skills needed to be successful in the games.
During the games students from all the schools showed great skills in batting, bowling and fielding. This lead to some high scoring and very competitive matches.
At the end of the day the scores were totalled up and Brockworth Primary School emerged as overall winners, with Castle Hill in second and Coopers Edge only just behind in third place. We would like to thank the staff involved in bringing the students over and the schools themselves for allowing their students to take up this opportunity.
A special mention should go to the 6th Form students who organised and ran the afternoon. Their planning, organistaion, communication and enthusiasm were all outstanding and they were a credit to the staff within the PE department who worked with them to prepare the event.
Congratulations to Daniel Sweet who competed in the High Jump event at the Gloucester Schools Athletic competition held back on 31st May 2012. He won his event and was offered the opportunity to compete at the County trials on 16th June. There was strong competition at although not quite jumping a seasons best, he achieved 1m50cm placing him second in the county. This is a great achievement and he will be presented with Athletic colours to wear on his new blazer in September. The PE department would like to congratulate him on his efforts, and parents for taking the day to support him.
The PE Department were lucky enough to be able to hold one of the Olympic torches when Mr Langworthy brought in the torch that his son, Ross, had carried through Brockworth.
