TBSHS put in the Top 100 Schools for Cricket for the first time.

Staff and pupils at The Bishop’s Stortford High School are thrilled today to find that they have been placed in The Cricketer Schools Guide top 100 Schools for Cricket in the UK, for the first time in the School’s history.

The Cricketer has published its Schools Guide 2021, featuring the top 100 senior, the top 50 prep/junior, and for the first time, the top 20 all-girls.

It follows an exhaustive process which saw a record number of schools submit entries to be included in the guide, despite the ongoing pandemic. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.

The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes said: “This year’s Schools Guide is particularly important in showcasing our schools who have kept the game alive through a very challenging summer. Whether it has been remote video sessions, drills in the garden or even Zoom quizzes, schools cricket has emerged resolutely from this pandemic and the appetite to get back out on the playing fields is palpable.  

There should be deserved praise for all the teachers, coaches and volunteers who have put in so much hard work, in the most difficult of circumstances, to preserve a love of the game among the next generation.

Congratulations to all of the schools included and we look forward to hearing about all of your future successes.”

Matthew Hale, Head of Cricket said ”We are delighted to be included in this prestigious magazine as it reflects all the effort that we have put in to developing cricket at TBSHS. This recognition provides additional motivation to continue building cricket at TBSHS and we will strive to provide even more opportunities for our pupils in the future.”
