Hockey

 

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

 

Our Programme

While pupils can access hockey 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 Girls and Boys 1st XI’s both compete in the England Hockey Tier 1 Schools Championships.  This puts us up against the top 24 schools across the country each year. All A team players also receive an S&C session each week in the Performance gym on top of their two games sessions.

Outside of the major term, pupils can access hockey through extra-curricular clubs from the age of seven, allowing those who love the game to continue to play across the year.  6th form pupils can access small group and one-to-one sessions during the school day with Director of Hockey.

We have a large number of pupils at all age ranges representing the school in the England Hockey Pathway as well as a rich history of OG’s who have gone on to play at top 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.
