Cricket is played by all year groups in the summer term. The school enters into the Berkshire league at U14 and U15 as well playing a number of friendly games against our local state and private school rivals. At senior level, due to the pressures of A-Level, AS and GCSE exams the school only runs one team but the main focus of the fixtures is play within the ‘spirit of cricket’. Our pinnacle annual fixture takes place against the MCC and is a highlight on the sporting calendar.
