Christmas Term Sports
Hockey is the main winter sport for girls and the school benefits from having three astroturf pitches, one of them full size. Our girls hockey is very strong all the way through the various levels, with matches aplenty for them all. Most matches are VII a side, although in Upper School, there are some XI a side matches to help prepare the girls for Senior School hockey. A lot of our girls play locally at Oxford Hawks Hockey Club and we also boast a healthy number of players in the Oxfordshire County set up.
The main winter sport for boys is rugby. Our sides compete on a challenging circuit against a number of the strongest rugby-playing schools in the South of England, and have enjoyed many successful seasons in terms of participation and excellence.
For both hockey and rugby there are also differentiated Inters and Form competitions too, in order to offer as many children as possible the opportunity for match-day experiences at the appropriate time and level. Both of our winter sports are strengths of the Dragon Sporting Programme and revered by other Prep Schools on the circuit.
