Hockey takes place in the Autumn and Spring terms at Garden House School. The children learn a range of ball skills, spatial awareness and co-ordination and they learn to manipulate the hockey stick, dribble and pass the ball and work as a team.
The children have the opportunity to play in plenty of matches against other schools and inter-house events within the school from year 2 upwards. The girls in year 6 experience going on Hockey Tour for the weekend, playing other Schools and Hockey Clubs. Garden House hosts an annual hockey festival at Battersea Park. Hockey is taught at a variety of venues including Battersea Park, Vauxhall Sports Centre and St Luke’s.
