The UK’s best schools for cricket have been revealed in The Cricketer’s Schools Guide 2023.
This year’s guide features the top 100 senior, top 50 prep/junior and top 20 all-girls schools for cricket in a bumper 156-page supplement.
St Lawrence College have been placed in the ‘Top 100 Cricket Schools in the UK’ in this prestigious guide for the third year running.
“We coach and have provision for every single child, catering for those who have never picked up a bat before, right through to those who have played 2nd class cricket”
We are very proud of our inclusion and this achievement is testament to the hard work of the sports department, the dedication and encouragement of parents, and lastly, the effort and skill of every one of our talented St Lawrence College cricketers.
All school entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a ‘compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, fixture programmes and coaching’.
Assistant Director of Sport and Head of Cricket at the School, Mr Seth Simmons, said: “As Head of Cricket I am very proud of continuing to be recognised as one of the top 100 cricket schools in the UK. Wherever pupils are on their journey, we will progress them to the next stage of development”
Through an extensive winter training programme led by Mr Simmons we have continued to have success across both boys and girls cricket with many pupils representing Kent County Cricket Club Youth and above.
“We have had three Kent Cricket Academy Scholars in the last four years which is testimony to the programme that we have in place and I am delighted that our cricket programme is renowned to allow all pupils to flourish. Here at St Lawrence College we are fortunate to have fantastic facilities, dedicated coaches and passionate pupils, all of which allow us to have success both on and off the sports field”
