Having recently celebrated 50 years of hockey at King’s, the sport continues to grow and thrive as a major sport. The new full sized floodlit pitch as well as the half-size pitch have given the school some of the best facilities in the North West. The new hockey pavilion was opened in September 2015 and is in constant use throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms.
As well as the superb facilities the school also benefits from a number of highly successful local and international coaches who are able to pass on their knowledge and expertise to the players.
The school runs teams from 1st XI down to U12 and are regularly competing in the latter stages of regional and national competitions.
The King’s pupils regularly achieve selection in regional representative hockey and the school has produced a number of exceptional players from schoolboy internationals to players performing at the very highest level of club hockey. The school takes great pride in the fact that so many former pupils continue to play the game that they were introduced to at school at all levels all through their adult life.
