TBSHS in the Top 100 Schools for Cricket
TBSHS stay on the list for the Third Year running
Staff and pupils at TBSHS were thrilled this week to find out that they have been included in the Top 100 Schools for Cricket for the third year running.
2023 Schools Guide revealed the UK’s best schools for cricket and for the second year running TBSHS have made the list!
State and private schools are both represented in the top 100, with the best all-girls and prep/junior schools also picked out by The Cricketer’s judging panel.
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.
2023’s successful roll call of schools – which features both state-funded and private establishments – was finalised after an exhaustive selection process that saw a huge number submit entries for inclusion in the guide.
All entries were then judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
The Cricketer gathered entries and compiled the leading lists, consulting former England star Lydia Greenway and her coaching initiative Cricket For Girls to select the top 20 all-girls schools.

The Cricketer magazine editor Huw Turbervill said: “I’ve read some inspirational stories working on this year’s guide. Take Mim Aldred, an allrounder playing in the boys’ 1st XI at Dragon School in Oxford. On tour she hit an unbeaten 50, then came back to bowl a triple-wicket maiden in the last over with the opposition requiring two to win. These really are tomorrow’s heroes today.”
The 2023 Schools Guide is included alongside the December issue of The Cricketer magazine – the world’s No.1 cricket magazine. The guide will also be made available digitally from December 9th.
The Cricketer researches and produces the Schools Guide annually, with the 2023 edition being supported by Durant Cricket, one of the country’s leading suppliers of cricket ground equipment.
