Children follow a programme of athletics, dance, gymnastics, games, swimming and outdoor adventure activities. The activities are designed to stimulate and challenge and we aim to promote enjoyable physical activity and healthy lifestyles for the years ahead. The school’s facilities for PE include two large halls and an indoor swimming pool. The playground has two netball courts and various games grids. In addition to this, the school has full use of the facilities in the adjacent Desborough sports ground.
The PE programme is complemented by lunchtime and after school sports activities in which all children are encouraged to take part. Various clubs are offered, which enables children to develop their skills and regular sports fixtures take place against other schools. Millbrook competes in local athletics, cricket, football, hockey and netball competitions. We are grateful for the valuable support of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club. Their work with us provides an exciting extension to children’s experiences.
Swimming is a statutory part of the National Curriculum for PE and all children are expected to be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres unaided by the end of Key Stage 2. MillbrookSchool is very fortunate to have its own heated indoor swimming pool. The pool has recently been refurbished and provides an excellent opportunity for children to develop their basic swimming skills and understanding of water safety. The pool is used to teach swimming to children in Years 1-6 during curriculum time. The school looks for other opportunities for children and parents to use these facilities during the evenings and weekends.
