Our Hockey Club aims to create an environment that develops pupils through hockey; preparing them for life beyond School and inspiring improved confidence and capability in all.

While pupils can access the sport all year round, it is the major game for Girls in the Michaelmas term and for Boys in the Lent term. We are able to field 10 teams across the senior school each term and aim to develop each pupils technical, tactical, physical and psychological skill sets. All pupils have access to matches throughout the term against a range of schools across East Anglia.

The Boys First XI teams compete in the England Hockey Tier 1 Schools Championships which puts us up against the top 24 schools across the country each year. The Girls First XI play in both the Independent Hockey Cup and the England Hockey Cup. In addition to our comprehensive program, Gresham’s offers the exciting opportunity for our junior A and B teams to participate in these Cup competitions which provides players of all levels the chance to compete against a wider array of teams beyond our block fixtures. 

Outside of the major term, pupils can access hockey through extra-curricular clubs allowing those who love the game to continue to play across the year. Sixth Form pupils can access small group and one-to-one sessions during the school day with the Director and Assistant Director of Hockey. Additionally, all A team players receive a Strength and Conditioning session each week in the Performance Gym on top of their two games sessions. 

We have a number of pupils at all age ranges representing the school in the England Hockey Pathway as well as a rich history of Old Greshamians who have gone on to play at top British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) universities, National League Clubs and a host of international club sides; a testament to the programme we are offering.

We are fortunate to have two floodlit AstroTurf pitches on site; allowing training and match play to happen at any time during the year. We regularly host County and Regional tournaments throughout the hockey calendar.
