There is nothing better than a school event where the community comes together!
On Friday 11th October, we hosted the first annual U8 Mixed Tag Rugby Festival. Three local primary schools; Middleton Primary, Monkston Primary and Brooklands Farm Primary, joined us for an afternoon of rugby.
This was the perfect opportunity
for the children to develop their knowledge and game play at a fun and relaxed
event, in which all the schools had the opportunity to play one another, in a
round robin format.
Festival concluded with a presentation of the award for the Player of the
Festival; in recognition of fantastic effort and team spirit.
The event was greatly supported by
families from all four schools.
A huge thank you to
the children and staff at Middleton Primary, Monkston Primary and Brooklands
Farm Primary and to our Head of Boys’ Games, Mr Richardson.
On Thursday 26th September, the
boys in classes 10 and 11 visited Franklin Gardens, the home of the Northampton
Saints. The day began with a training session with a Northampton Saints coach,
which took place on the training pitches next to the Northampton Saints first
team squad, who were preparing for their upcoming fixture against the Wasps
After the session, some of the children were fortunate to meet
the Saints players, including the former England Captain Dylan Hartley and England international Teimana
eating lunch, we watched the first half of England’s second world cup match
against USA. In the afternoon, we were treated to a tour of the stadium and the
gentleman in charge of the Northampton Saints kit was at hand to explain the
schedule of the players during a normal match week.
We ended the day with a visit to the
community activity zone, where the children took part in 30 second passing and
kicking challenges and the ‘crash wall’ where the pupils (and teachers) had to run
towards and crash through a purpose build foam wall.
All in all, the day was extremely
informative and a lot of fun. Who knows, one day we may well be back at
Franklin Gardens to watch a former BMPS pupil play!
On Wednesday 20th June 13 of our pupils in Year 2 took part in their first football fixture at Monkston Primary School. We started positively with plenty of possession and created the first clear cut chances of the game. Monkston then created 2 chances on the counter attack and scored both to leave us 2-0 down at half-time. The team talk was clear; we needed to keep going and enjoy ourselves. We pressed forward with more conviction and determination and we went on to score 5 unanswered goals. A hat trick for Alfie Rowland, 1 goal from Ivan Nyeama and a goal from a corner by Max Dhillon. Congratulations to all the children that took part!
Congratulations to our U11 Boys who won the ISFA Regional Championship at King’s Ely on Saturday 17th March 2018.
Broughton Manor booked their place at St George’s Park for the first time after claiming the U11 7v7 east region title at the rearranged event held at Kings Ely.
Broughton Manor were the stand out team in group B going through the group stages unbeaten with 3 wins and a draw to top the group.
The quarter finals produced some incredibly tight matches with three of the four being decided by penalties with Kings Ely, Taverham Hall and Broughton Manor being victorious in the shoot-outs.
Penalties were once again needed in the second semi-final and it was Broughton Manor who held their nerve and defeated Taverham Hall in the shoot-out.
The final was an excellent game between the two group winners and it was decided by a second half goal as Broughton Manor took the chance when it came and then defended excellently to see the game out and claim a
1-0 victory and be crowned ISFA East Region U11 champions and claim the final spot in the National Finals day at
St George’s Park.
The boys were outstanding today at the ISFA regional tournament, a huge achievement for them and the school! Read more »

BMPS put on their best display this season, setting a target of 258 for our visitors.
The match went down to the last ball, and unfortunately for BMPS the last delivery was a No Ball. As a result Quinton house won by 1 run!
Player of the match was Mohammed-Eisa Osman. Taking a wicket, two catches and hitting 19 off 11 balls.
BMPS won the toss and elected to bowl. Keshav and Oliver opened the bowling but struggled to break through a strong opening batting pair.
Finally, in the 8th over Ire delivered a gem to dismiss their danger man. Another wicket soon followed in the 10th over with Avyukt getting his first of the season. Then came the third change of attack that saw Rohan and Abiola take two wickets each in their spell, with the latter narrowly missing out on a Hat trick! Great bowling Abiola!
Quinton finished on 85/6.
BMPS started their batting innings slowly, feeling out their bowlers. The 3rd over saw the first boundary hit by Charlie, who unfortunately lost his wicket a few balls after. Keshav, Ire and Rohan also found the boundary with some well-placed shots. Oliver and Avyukt added some well needed singles which set up a tense finish. Ire and Abiola needing 14 off the last over……… They managed 8, a great effort but not enough for the victory.
A great performance from the boys all around.
Result BMPS 79/6 – 85/6 Quinton House Read more »
In a well-balanced match, chances were taken by both sides and only 1 rounder separated the teams after the first innings.
Both bowlers were put under pressure in the second innings but valiantly kept going. It all came down to the last ball of the game with the scores tied at 15 all but BMPS were unable to turn a backwards hit into a half rounder, so the game finished in a draw!
The highlight of our batting performance was Nimi managing to score 1.5 rounders in one turn, capitalising on a fielding error to put pressure on their fielders and gaining half a rounder for obstruction at 4th post whilst scoring a rounder. In the field, Funmi stepped into the role of bowler and worked hard to master this key position. The girls worked well in the field and we always had at least 2 players going for a ball.
