It’s been an autumn term of success for King Edward VI school, with both the girls and boys teams reaching the national stages of their respective junior age group competitions.
The girls Under-18 and Under-16 teams won county titles and now the boys have followed suit, qualifying for next month’s England Hockey Under-16 finals in Canterbury after reaching the South final.
After recovering a two-goal deficit in the first game to draw with Reeds School, KES comfortably beat St. George's (Weybridge), Abingdon and Seaford College to reach the semi-final. A 5-3 victory over Cranleigh took them into the final where they lost 4-3 to Whitgift School.
KES sports head Dan Kent said: “To finish second in the south is outstanding, but as a result they also qualify for the national finals where the top ten school teams across the country will compete for the national title.”
