ALLENBOURN Middle School sporting history was re-written recently when a year 5 and 6 boys’ gymnastics team won gold medals at the Dorset Schools Team Tumbling competition. This was the first time the school had won gold in gymnastics and it was also the first time they had entered a boys only team. The five boys were part of a nearly 30 strong team of gymnasts from the school competing at Rossmore Leisure Centre.

Mrs Darragh, PE teacher said: “We were proud of all the children competing, but especially pleased for the boys, none of whom are club gymnasts, but worked hard to learn their routines and performed extremely well on the day.”
