Hockey is played as a major sport at Mill Hill during two terms. The autumn term is the girls’ main season and they are also joined by the boys U14s. The spring term is the Senior and U15 boys’ main season. During the two terms, the teams have an opportunity to train twice a week, with the 1st teams training three times. The entire hockey programme is played on the School’s artificial pitch and there is an extensive fixture programme against other leading independent schools.
Boys’ and girls’ teams compete in the Schools Hockey Association Cup. The girls have been Middlesex Champions on numerous occasions and have represented the County at the Regional Qualifying tournament.
Along with the regular season fixtures, there are opportunities to tour abroad and these are on rotation in the School’s touring programme. The School has recently toured South Africa and Spain, and there are plans to run regular trips to Holland and Germany in the future for boys’ and girls’ sections at both junior and senior level.
While the School remains committed to producing the best teams that they can, there is also a great focus on participation. Mill Hill also runs teams at a more recreational level for those who just love taking part, and these are always very popular.
The hockey programme is headed up by Jonathan Cuff (Master I.C Hockey) and Stuart Hendy (Current EHA contracted Coach) and the standard of coaching given to all our pupils is very high. We are also fortunate to call on the services of visiting coaches and have welcomed Chloe Strong (current England International) into the coaching set up for the last five years.
