The Under 13 Boys� Hockey team have had a very successful season. Firstly, they qualified for the National Schools finals by coming runners-up in the East Schools round of the National Hockey Tournament at Redbridge in March. In addition, at the IAPS East qualifying tournament, the Under 13 team competed against twenty other schools and went on to qualify as one of only four teams to compete at the IAPS National Finals at Millfield, which took place on Thursday 14th March. The team played some very tough matches, but delivered a high standard of hockey and progressed to the final, where they lost to Chafyn Grove on the �golden goal� rule and so became the runners up in the IAPS Nationals.

Mark Buckingham, Head of Hockey at the Prep School, said �This is a fantastic result for the team and I am really proud of all the hard work they have put in to make the National IAPS finals!"
