I was also delighted that the Ladies’ 1st team ended the season with a fantstic 5-0 win to be 6th in the league and their display of fighting spirit will hopefully inspire many of these youngsters to stick with their sport and aim for the top.

The partnership between St Edmund’s and Canterbury Hockey Club is a terrific opportunity for our pupils to have access to one of the strongest clubs in the South East and it also allows the school to give something back to sport in the local community. Sport plays an important part in the education of all of our pupils from the ages of 3 to 18.”
