Hockey is the main sport in the spring term and is offered to all boys from Year 7 through to the Sixth Form. We currently run A-D teams at U12 & U13, and A-B teams at U14 and U15, which all feed into our senior squads at U16 and U18 level. All age groups take part in their own National Cup competition.

We are lucky enough to have our own high quality, brand new astroturf for training and matches and our hockey players also have access to our fantastic fitness suite in which they can take part in their own strength & conditioning to improve performance on the pitch.


Our team of coaches brings a huge amount of experience from outside the school to benefit the players. Currently, our team has experience of both playing and coaching at National League level and coaching in the England Hockey Single System, as well as working with Senior and Junior International players.

Supporting Hockey at RGS

Our Hockey provision is only possible through the support of parents and guardians, whose contributions allow us to support and provide more for our boys than we would otherwise be able to do.

This year already we have been able to invest in restocking the school’s stick supply (which, it’s fair to say, were in need of a little TLC) and repairing the junior and senior goalkeeper kits which take a bit of a battering. We have also been able to acquire some deflection and rebound boards to help hone our goal scorer's instincts, as well as keep our keepers on their toes.

We also were able to bring in recent Bath 1XI captain, and OW, Colin Dudrey-Harvey as a Graduate Hockey coach for a term leading up to Christmas. His input was invaluable, sharing his wisdom with the boys and in particular taking responsibility for penalty corners with all of the squads.  

In order to maintain all our equipment and associated fixture costs, we ask for a £100 Membership from all students involved in after school training and fixtures.

To pay the membership fee, please go to ParentPay, look up Hockey Membership 2024 and make the £100 payment.

It is the policy of the School that pupils should not be prevented from taking part in school activities due to financial reasons.  If you feel that the cost involved is prohibitive, please feel free to contact me in confidence.

Links with Clubs

RGS Hockey players are lucky to have a number of quality Junior hockey clubs in the local area if they want to play more hockey outside of school. 

We have a particularly strong link with Wycombe Hockey Club, and many of our boys make up RGS teams in the week before donning the blue and orange of Wycombe on the weekend. However, we also have many boys representing ReadingMarlowMaidenhead and Amersham & Chalfont and all of these clubs have a strong tradition of developing junior players throughout club hockey of all levels.  

If your son is interested in joining a hockey club outside of school, please feel free to have him talk to his hockey coach who would be happy to point him in the right direction.
