Hockey

Opportunities for all pupils to get involved

Hockey continues to flourish at the Millfield Prep for both boys and girls. Each year we run around 16 teams for both the girls and boys. We aim to offer everybody the chance to participate in school matches whilst maintaining our status as the country’s leading hockey school. We host huge numbers of tournaments and to encourage player development for all pupils we regularly enter lower teams into separate B team competitions.

Access to great facilities and coaching

All coaching sessions and fixtures are played on Astro-turf. We have our own sand dressed pitch on site and gain regular access to the three water based pitches at the Senior School. The sports hall is also set up for indoor hockey. Our coaching staff are very strong and include a former Olympic player and Premier National League coach.

Chances to compete at the highest levels

We have strong links with England Hockey and encourage pupils to access the player pathway. In addition to an extensive fixture list we compete very successfully in the National Schools and IAPS competitions. Many of our previous pupils graduate to international and Olympic teams.
