We encourage pupils of all abilities to experience and enjoy Hockey. During the Lower School they develop their basic skills; learning a variety of passes, dribbling, tackling and also goal scoring.In the Prep School hockey is played in the Lent Term. We play seven-a-side hockey and focus on learning to hit the ball, reverse stick skills, goal scoring and team play. Goal keeping skills are also introduced.
Every child in all year groups competes in fixtures against other local schools. Children begin to develop their understanding of game play and understand the tactics and set plays used in matches. Interhouse hockey is one of the highlights of the term and matches are fiercely fought between the Thomas's schools. A full fixture and tournament list means opportunities for all to play plenty of matches and to develop their team spirit
