Hockey

Hockey is a major sport at Repton for both boys and girls. All pupils, regardless of their experience, receive regular hockey training with one of the teams and are able to participate in school matches. Regular fixtures are arranged for all pupils and opponents include schools, universities and senior club sides. The most talented hockey players are encouraged to balance school and club hockey and can are able to receive hockey coaching during all three terms with a team of experienced coaches led by Martin Jones, a former Great Britain International and current England U18 Coach.

Two floodlit water-based Astroturf pitches, a sand-based Astroturf and a Sports Hall suitable for Indoor Hockey allows training to continue all year round.  First-class facilities have meant that Repton has been used as a training venue for the Great Britain Men’s Squad in the past and also regularly for various junior International squads and as an England Hockey Performance Centre.

The most recent overseas tours saw the U16 Boys and Girls visiting Hamburg in October 2016 and, in January, the Boys and Girls 1st XIs were victorious in the Los Reyes Tournament at Barcelona’s Polo Club.

Repton has an impressive record in the National Hockey Finals, with the girls winning the National Under 18 title a record breaking ten times between 2005 and 2017, and the boys winning both the U16 and U18 National Titles in 2015 & 2016. Repton regularly qualify for the National Finals with a variety of age groups and have been crowned National Champions thirty three times since 2005.
