We would like to thank Gleave Homes for their sponsorship of the cricket teams.
The school boasts 3.8 hectares of grass and during the summer term it is used for cricket, with two artificial wickets and a number of grass wickets on the square.
The grass is also home to four recently purchased state-of-the-art artificial cricket nets and there is a Flicx 2G mat located in a batting cage on the all-weather surface in front of the Junior School. The new portable pitch provides a more realistic and consistent bounce for batsmen as well as assisting and encouraging both spin and fast bowlers.
