Hockey is one of our Spring sports that runs between the months of January and April. Over the last ten years Hockey has grown in both popularity and success. The school plays friendlies against local state and private schools as well entering into the Berkshire cup competition.
The school is very lucky to have its own astroturf (something many schools do not have the space for) that allows the boys to train and play on a regular basis throughout the term.
Although in year 9, we are two years behind many of the schools we play against, this does not stop us from providing a challenge to our opponents and once our boys reach 6th Form our senior sides are a match for any side.
Zac Gallagher (11 Warwick) has received some fantastic news this week and has been invited to the Performance Centre Programme for England Hockey.
