Hockey is available for all girls to play at Benenden and it has taken a real push forward in the last couple of years with some keen hockey coaches on the staff and some very talented players.

Hockey has been introduced into curriculum PE lessons and we also run junior and senior squads. Matches are played intermittently during the Autumn and Spring terms and we compete in the Kent Schools and EGHA Schools Tournaments.

We have had several girls who have been selected for the England Hockey Single System (Junior Development Centre) and will be taking part in the Mid Kent Hockey programme next year. Benenden has also set up links with the Mid Kent Development Centre and they will be using our facilities as one of their venues for development centre training.

It is our aim over the next couple of years for Benenden to develop the hockey further with use of the All-Weather Pitch. The coaching staff are fully committed to growing the number of girls playing hockey, improving the level of performance and ensuring that all girls enjoy the sport.
