Malcolm Arnold Hockey Academy

Northampton Hockey Club are working  with David Ross Educational Trust and Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton to offer the second year of the Hockey Development Programme in September 2022 for young players to maximise their potential within Hockey, whilst studying towards GCSE or A-Level qualifications. A first for Hockey in the state school sector, the programme will provide over 5 additional hours of hockey specific training throughout the school week, while players can continue to train and compete for their clubs outside of school too. The programme will be open to all year groups, male and female, with regular matches also scheduled throughout each term. Not only is this the first hockey programme of its kind in the state sector, but, other than the cost of training and match kit, there are no fee’s payable to attend and benefit from the programme.  

We would like to invite keen hockey players to consider choosing Malcolm Arnold for their educational future, both pupils in year 5 and 6 looking to choose a secondary school and those in years 7, 8 , 9  already in secondary schools if they wish to change schools to pursue their hockey career.

In order to share further details and answer any questions, we’re holding two information evenings times  and dates tbcvia Microsoft Teams.  A link will be posted here to register and potential participants will be sent the link and it is open to anyone to attend, whether they already attend the school or may be interested in joining in order to access this exciting opportunity.
