Hockey is played during PE lessons and during Extra-curricular activities.
St Mary's entered into the QuickSticks Hockey Tournaments 2016. We had a tough first round in the Quicksticks Hockey Tournaments playing some of the best schools in Manchester but we managed to push through into the 2nd round. In the second round, we didn't loose one game, drawing two and winning the remaining games but due to the high competition that wasn't enough, just missing out on a place in the Citywide Finals. Fantastic efforts from everyone that took part and thank-you for all the parents and careers for your support on the sidelines.
