Unleash Your Hockey Potential. In the Michaelmas term, our girls take centre stage, and in the Lent term, it's the boys' turn. We offer A, B, and C teams in most age groups, ensuring everyone has a chance to shine. Our strong circuit features weekly block fixtures, keeping the competition exciting.
Hockey is the main sport played in the Michaelmas term for girls and in the Lent term for boys. We regularly field A, B and C teams in most age groups and play on a strong circuit with block fixtures taking place every week. In Year 9 and above, pupils who are involved in the hockey programme take part in a timetabled sports afternoon, alongside an after-school practice. In Years 7 and 8, there are two timetabled hockey sessions. In addition, there are various opportunities for extra training as well as hockey masterclasses in the ‘off season’. Overseas tours are also offered as pupils progress through the school.
Our floodlit Astroturf pitch was resurfaced in 2020. A new viewing platform was also built to ensure a much improved spectator facility. We are fortunate to have some excellent and well-qualified hockey coaches on the staff, with their expert advice enhancing the experience and success of our teams by ensuring specific training for our outfield players and goalkeepers.
We have strong links with many hockey clubs in the region, with pupils involved in many of the age grade county development and academy centres. We enter the County Schools’ tournaments at every age group and recently progressed to the regional stage at U16 and U18 age groups. Pupils also participate in the county indoor tournaments in the Michaelmas term.
Last week, our talented U14s took on the England Hockey Tier 2 Competition at Woodbridge School. The competition was fierce, and here's how it all played out:
Congratulations to our senior girls' 1st team on their outstanding performance at the England Hockey U18 County tournament! They displayed incredible skill and determination throughout the competition and it paid off with a well-deserved victory.
With the sun blazing down it was great to get our block hockey and rugby seasons up and running.
