Cricket club update

So far this term the weather has been kind and the prospects for a good school cricket season are positive. Only one League fixture has been played at the moment and the details are below. The fixture list is also included, please make every effort to allow your child to participate in our major summer team sport.  Cricket is of course a non-contact, skills based activity and will allow those who as yet do not have the physical tools for rugby to get involved in a team game with their peers. This is a very valuable opportunity and all pupils should be encouraged to take part and give it a real go!
