Richard Bateman, Head of Schools Sport at The Bramcote School informs us – The Bramcote School has continued to have sporting success on a great scale this last term. The school, despite being one of the smallest in the county, has managed to have 6 teams at the Nottinghamshire School Games representing Broxtowe. In this competition the school now represents the district they are in, competing against the other areas of Nottinghamshire.
The Y8 girls Basketball team played in the Y9 girls competition and came 7th overall. Whilst our Y7 boys Futsal team came 8th overall. The biggest success stories came from the Handball teams. The Bramcote School managed to have all 4 teams representing Broxtowe at Y8 and Y10 age levels. The two boys teams found the going hard and both were eliminated before the semi finals, finishing 7th and 8th. The girls teams were more successful with the Y10 girls teams finishing 4th overall in Nottinghamshire and the Y8 girls team going one better and finishing 3rd overall, only beaten by the eventually winners.
Netball TeamIn another sporting arena, the Y8 Netballers from The Bramcote School have excelled. They have been playing in the Nottinghamshire Central venue league over the last few weeks and progressed to the finals undefeated, beating Fernwood School, Christ the King, George Spencer Academy and Trinity school. In these finals the team excelled. Despite being the smallest school in the competition, with only 35 girls in the whole year group, they defeated Magnus School (Newark) 16- 1, Nottingham Girls High School 11-2, West Bridgeford School 6-5 and Fernwood school 13-2 to become the overall winners. They now go to the Nottinghamshire County Tournament in fine form.
This adds to the Netball success that the school has been having this year. The Y9 team also won the Central Venue League and have only been beaten by Nottingham Girls High School this year whilst the Y11 team came 3rd overall and only lost 3 times.
