Cricket Club meets after School every week during the Summer Term, building towards the annual Stevenage Cricket Festivals, which are hosted by Stevenage Cricket Club. We have reached the final of the mixed event three times in the last five years, and have also represented Stevenage at the Herts Youth Games, taking on some of the best Year 6 players in Hertfordshire. The 2019 season was a particularly successful one, with both our Mixed and Girls teams winning their Stevenage Tournaments and making it to County Finals - you can find out more about how we got on this year below.
We play Kwik Cricket, a faster-paced version of the game that features plastic bats and balls (so no need for pads), but still follows all the usual cricket rules, and we spend lots of time perfecting our over-arm bowling and fielding skills. We regularly link-up with coaches from Stevenage Cricket Club and Hertfordshire Cricket through the Chance to Shine programme, and have been delighted to see several of our players invited to join (and play for) Stevenage CC as a result.
"Pastoral care for pupils and their families is strong. Pupils feel well cared for because leaders and staff go out of their way to help and support them."
