On Monday staff from the netball ‘Dream Team’ challenged students from different year groups to netball matches.

Martial Arts Champions Win Gold

Mankind has been practising martial arts for over 5000 years and, arguably, it is more popular in the 21st century that ever before. From Glima, a combat technique which involves the wearing of special belts to aid grip, to Shuai-chiao, which is the oldest style of Kung Fu recorded, Martial Arts are so varied in their styles that almost anyone could find a style they’d enjoy or excel in.

New Millbrook Academy Bus Route

Millbrook Academy are pleased to announce that we will be running a new school bus to replace the Stagecoach Route 4.  Millbrook Academy’s priority was to ensure that the students who were affected by the withdrawal of the route 4 service were still able to get to and from the Academy safely and with as little disruption as possible.

Bus routes

Jan Scott, Principal, is in discussion with Stagecoach and other transport firms to ensure that pupils are unaffected by the proposed changes to the bus routes.

She says: "Please be assured the Academy is doing its utmost to provide a solution so that transport does not become a barrier for our students' education. We will be contacting all parents of current and new students as soon as we are in a position to confirm revised arrangements."
