We are very pleased and proud to report that Year 11 student Duncan Scott has been selected for the England Under 16 hockey squad for the 2014 season.

Over the past 18 months, Duncan has attended a series of vigorous training camps and trials, which have comprised many different fitness- and skill-based assessments. He will now continue to attend squad training sessions before playing in a Four Nations tournament in Germany at Easter. Duncan was selected to play in the Dr Challoner’s 1XI as a Year 9 pupil, which is a remarkable achievement, and he will continue to be a key member of the school 1XI for 3 further years.

We wish Duncan the very best with his hockey over the busy months ahead and he has been awarded full hockey colours in acknowledgement of his England selection.
