Hockey

Head of Girls’ Hockey: Mrs Jo Fryer-Green

Head of Boy’s Hockey: Mr Richard Hay


Both boys and girls participate in hockey: girls in the autumn term and boys in the spring term. Both have training sessions during games afternoons and after school, with a regular programme of fixtures against local schools throughout the week and on Saturdays.

We are very lucky at Bancroft’s to have access to such a prestigious venue as Old Loughtonians Hockey Club, (Olympic training venue for London 2012) where we both train and play matches.

We regularly have both boys’ and girls’ team in action in the Essex cup and over the past years have had many teams, particularly at U18 and U16 level, progressing to the East of England regional play offs.

Hockey tours regularly take place, with recent destinations being to Singapore & Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Barcelona. Girls’ senior tours are organised jointly with netball and they have toured to South Africa (2013), Australia (2000) and Singapore and Malaysia in the summer of 2016.  Planning for Barbados 2019 is well underway. In addition, junior players have travelled to the Netherlands for a mini tour at Easter.

Bancroft’s players are involved throughout the player pathway of the England Single System, from Essex Junior Regional Development Centres upwards through playing at international level. We have recently had a good number of players selected for the National U16 and U18 teams representing England and also Wales.
