Old Rose Hill pupils part of national indoor hockey championship team
On Sunday 31st January East Grinstead celebrated an eighth successive national indoor title at the Super 6’s in the SSE Arena in Wembley. Three out of the six players in the East Grinstead team have links to Rose Hill School. Wesley Jackson and Will Arthur are both ex pupils and Andy Piper was a gap student at the school. Alongside their team mates, they celebrated another landmark in hockey’s history books and will now go on to represent England in Europe in 2017.
Former World Young Player of the Year and three times Olympic hero, Ashley Jackson, also went to Rose Hill and officially opened the school’s all-weather Astro turf in 2010. He currently plays for Holcombe.
Every child from Year 3 to Year 8 plays hockey and it is a key sport for the school. I wonder whether any of our current sports enthusiasts will be representing England in the future….?!
