An aerial view of Millfield sports ground and the world famous 50m Swimming Pool, in which I have the pleasure of training everyday, alongside the athletics track, where I do some of my land training.
This fabulous view is only a very small part of what Millfield have to offer

You will never believe this. I have been selected to be a first batch Prefect at Millfield School it is a very high honour, Millfield normally only offer first batch positions to existing Millfield pupils that have been there for a number of years. I am so excited I hope I live up to their expectations.
Here I am with one of my best friends, Gwen. You can just make out my Prefect brooch.

Monday 7th September 2009 was my first day at Millfield School in Somerset. It was o.k. a little nerve racking but all went well and I have chosen my A Level subjects – Psychology – Physical Education & Philosophy.
Hope I chose well because I will be studying them for the next two years.
The ASA have also invited me as an elite athlete to study for “AASE” Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence fantastic I hear you say, but 3 “A” levels and a Coaching Degree with all my Swimming, Land & Gym Training it will be tough going.
But I am sure I will be able to manage ~~~ 🙂 ~~~
Made my room look a bit like home
Cool! First weekend at Millfield and I am away to Skern Lodge Activity Centre in Bideford, Devon for a Swimming Team Bonding weekend. Sorry forgot to take a camera.
It’s only been a couple of weeks and I am missing home like crazy. I miss Rochford Swimming Club and my home coach Doug Drake with their 25m pool, my friends at home & RADS. Most of all I miss my best friend Bruce.
Never mind I keep telling myself I will be home at half term, so no time to be down, lots of studying and training to do. It is so different training in a 50m pool. Meeting new friends from all around the world, and trying to get to class on time in high heels is a Gym workout all of its own. I have got to have more self control, food here at Millfield is fantastic cream cakes as and when you want them is not always a good thing.
Talk about throwing you in at the deep end. Millfield entered me in for the Somerset Development Meet in Hutton Moor, Weston-Super-Mare. I swam o.k. It was an able body swimming meet and not all of Millfield’s Swimming Team had met me so some were a little surprised to see I only had one arm.

August 10th Not long now until I leave home and start a new chapter in my life at Millfield, I am feeling very excited. Picked up my trunks today from Steve owner of Logicline Trunks Ltd in Barling, Essex. All systems go, Pack! Pack! Pack!

On the 20th June I went to Millfield to meet my future Houseparents,
Neil & Anne Whiskerd, they were lovely.
Below are a few snap shots taken around Millfield.
This will be my boarding House “Abbey“
which over looks one of Millfields playing fields,
you can just see the roof of the 50m Pool behind the trees.
The rear of Abbey House overlooks the equestrian centre.
Behind this impressive sculpture is the Restaurant/Cafeteria
This is where I will be training whilst studying my A Levels.
