Hockey is one of the school’s focus sports for boys and girls with the programme led by our Director of Hockey, Mr Craig Morton. Mr Morton is a former Scottish Junior international and currently plays for Sevenoaks Hockey Clubs men’s 1st XI in the national league. Mr Morton is supported by Mr Tom Butt (national league hockey player, a former Head of Hockey and Level 3 trained coach), Miss Anna Frizoni (national league hockey player) and Miss Susie Rowe (national league hockey player and a former Head of Hockey). Training and fixtures take place on our excellent new hockey Astroturf and at nearby Sevenoaks Hockey Club.
Hockey fixtures and training are played predominantly by girls in the autumn term and by boys in the spring term. However, the school runs a pre-season programme for all focus team games in the preceding term, which enables pupils to develop their skills and knowledge of the game in preparation for the season ahead. This also allows less experienced or novice players a chance to learn the basics and reach a level of confidence to be able to play in fixtures come the start of the season.
The school has strong links with Sevenoaks HC and Knole Park HC who use our pitch for training and matches. The school also has links with nearby East Grinstead HC, Oxted HC, Bromley and Beckenham HC and Tunbridge Wells HC.
