Forest named in top 100 schools for cricket

Forest has been named as one of the top 100 schools in the country for cricket.

The School received the accolade from The Cricketer’s annual prestigious list.

‘This is a celebration of the best of school sport, the grounds, the facilities, the coaching, the fixture lists and the general commitment to getting those blighters on the field to play a semblance of the game that has characterised England and Englishness for more than three centuries,’ says The Cricketer’s editor Simon Hughes.

Forest has a dedicated cricket programme and is led by our Cricket Professional and Essex County Cricket Club’s captain James Foster and Master-in-Charge of Cricket Saul Foulds.

Speaking about the achievement, Mr Foulds explained: ‘The Cricketer is one of the key authorities on the game, so if you make their ‘Top 100 Schools’ you know you’re doing something right.

‘It’s a testament to the importance Forest attaches to cricket across the school and just how much both pupils and staff enjoy the game here.’
