Hockey

Hockey continues to flourish under the direction of Mrs Glover who is a GB Advanced Coach, and also coaches at the Regional Performance Centres. She is assisted by National League player Neil Evans, and coaches who have vast experience of playing and coaching. Hockey is the major sport for girls in the Michaelmas term and for boys in the Lent term. The senior boys and girls play indoor hockey throughout the Michaelmas term and compete in the County and Regional Indoor Championships.

The Hockey programme runs from U8 through to 1st XI with 7 a-side teams at U8, U11 and U13, moving to 11 a-side from U14, to 1st XI. There is a structured development programme in place, supported by experienced hockey coaches, physiotherapy and strength and conditioning provision. A robust fixture list in both terms provides pupils with the opportunity to pitch their skills against local and regional opposition. There are also day trips and overnight tours which enable pupils to further develop as individuals and as a team.
