National Hockey Champions!

Our Under-13 hockey team has dominated a prestigious national tournament and beaten stiff competition from across the country to win a National Hockey Prize.  

The Independent School Hockey Cup, organised by Smile Group Travel, has seen schools competing in knock-out rounds since October 2016. By the time our Under-13 squad reached the final they had scored 27 goals and conceded none. 

Last week the squad travelled to Ilford to compete in the last rounds. They beat Newcastle Royal Grammar School in the semi-final with a decisive 5-1 win and went on to face The Grange School, Cheshire. At this point, outstanding play from every member of the team meant they emerged victorious with a convincing 6-1 win. 

Saskia Lawrence, aged 12 and one of the youngest members of the squad, received the ‘Player of the Tournament Award’.  

Claire Maggs, Director of Sport at The Red Maids’ School said, “The girls have shown such commitment and maturity in their preparation for this final. I am delighted to see their hard work pay off and to bring the U13 National Championship title back to Bristol.”
