Head of Girls’ Hockey: Mrs Jo Fryer-Green

Head of Boy’s Hockey: Mr Daniel Webster

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), Singapore and Malaysia (2016) and Barbados (2019). 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.

11+ Open Morning & resumption of Minibus service

On Saturday 16 November, we are holding our final 11+ Open Morning for entry to Bancroft’s in September 2020.  Refreshments will be served from 9.30am onwards before introductory talks at 10am.  Pupil led tours will follow and there will be plenty of chances to talk to staff.  We look forward to meeting you on Saturday.

We are pleased to advise you that the roadworks directly outside the school have now concluded and the resulting traffic congestion has therefore eased. As a result we will be restoring the Loughton Minibus Service to it’s normal time with immediate effect, from Wednesday 13th November onwards it will be in the Sainsbury’s Car Park at Loughton Station from 7.45am and will depart promptly at 8am.
