Hockey is the core sport for boys during the Lent term, with indoor hockey played during the Michaelmas term. The Senior School fields 16 separate sides and pupils enjoy access hockey clinics all year round through our extra-curricular programme. Boys hockey has rapidly grown over the last few years and with growing numbers of players being selected at county and regional level, we are competing at a very competitive level.
