Worth School is delighted to have been named among the top cricketing schools in Britain for a fourth year in a row.
The School’s commitment to providing a top-level coaching programme, excellent facilities, a fixtures schedule designed to challenge players and an overall commitment to cricket in the curriculum has been recognised as standing out from others.
Following an exhaustive process The Cricketer, the world’s oldest and best-selling cricket magazine, has revealed its Schools Guide 2022 naming Worth among the top 100 senior schools in the country. Judges also took into account how schools kept the game alive during the pandemic and how they look to ensure cricket remains a central part of school life.
Editor Simon Hughes said: “Considering the quality of entries this year you should be very proud of your efforts.”
Cricket coaching at Worth is delivered by Mr Raj Chaudhuri, a former professional cricketer and Level 4 coach who has coached county programmes, academy sides, age group squads and at ICC international tournaments.
The Worth Cricket Academy has an enviable record of success in developing aspirational cricketers to district, county and national representative level. Academy cricketers benefit from up to 10 hours coaching per week throughout the year with excellent facilities including indoor and outdoor nets, three bowling machines and video analysis capabilities.
With a strong ethos based on developing confidence through competence, the Cricket Academy is an outstanding vehicle for developing and supporting aspirational cricketers to achieve their goals in combination with an excellent academic education.
Our facilities include indoor and outdoor nets, a number of bowling machines and a nursery in the Summer Term, with cricket available to all boys and girls. We run eight representative sides, plus an all-girls U13 side in the Summer Term.
Mr Chaudhuri said: “We are dedicated to providing a programme based on the needs of the individual player relating to his or her stage of development. As a school we promote girls and boys playing in the same team. To be chosen for this honour four years on the trot is a proud achievement. We have some very promising young players who, depending on the effort they put in, can scale the heights.”
The Cricketer Schools Guide will be included as a prestigious 156-page supplement accompanying the December issue of The Cricketer which is available on the newsstand from Friday (26 November). As well as appearing in print alongside the world’s No.1 cricket magazine, the guide will be made available on The Cricketer website from Wednesday 15 December at www.thecricketer.com
