Boys from right across the school have enjoyed a fabulous half term of hockey – with so much more still to come.
What is wonderful, is to see the sheer number of boys who have played and represented the school, some of them for the first time ever. Across both the Prep and Upper schools, a staggering 444 boys have played at least one game in a school hockey fixture so far this term.
In the Upper School, boys have shown promising development across the board with the U16s continuing to progress in the national cup competition where they await a tie with either Oundle or Greshams in the last 16.
Although a tough end to the term saw the 1st XI lose two cup games in two days, neither loss was a reflection of their efforts and performances but more a lack of cutting edge in the final third. The squad now have an opportunity to regroup and focus their efforts into progressing in the Tier 3 England Hockey competition.
Meanwhile, the U14s start their journey to Lee Valley Olympic Park after half term with their regional qualifiers where they are hoping to reach the national finals.
