All children from Grades 3 to 7 have the opportunity to participate in hockey during the Trinity Term. Four Fillies teams and four Colts teams are selected for 7-a-side matches covering Grades 4 and 5. Grade 3 girls also play matches while Grade 3 boys are simply exposed to the sport. Games are played on a reduced field to allow children to develop basic skills and a knowledge of the rules. A strong emphasis is placed on safety.

The senior boys field four sides, playing full field hockey, whilst the girls compete for a place in the 1st and 2nd XI. The girls’ 1st XI toured to Kenya in 2010. Four fields are available for both matches and practice making it possible for all children to have their skills in the sport sufficiently developed.
