On Tuesday 28 September the under 11 A girls hockey team travelled to Hurstpierpoint College for a regional IAPS qualifying tournament. There were 19 teams in total, with the top 3 teams qualifying for nationals. Danes Hill started off strongly with 3 wins from 3 in our pool against, Cumnor House, Rowan Prep, and Kent College. This meant the girls went through as top of our pool, the girls were then up against Downsend in the quarter-final. The girls had lost a couple of weeks prior to them in another tournament, so it was going to be a tough game. We ended up winning the match 1-0 and progressed to the semi-final. Danes Hill then played the hosts Hurst Prep in the semi-final where they put out one of their strongest performances winning 3 nil. On to the final, against Rowan Prep again! The girls beat them again winning 3-2. This meant Danes Hill were crowned Regional Champions and have qualified for nationals. Well done to all the girls!

About Danes Hill
Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
- School Life
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
