Once again Dunottar School, in Reigate Surrey, has been independently selected by The Cricketer magazine as one of the UK’s top independent schools for cricket.
The competitive process saw a huge number of schools submit entries, judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
Also taken into account, was how schools kept the game alive during the pandemic, and how they look to ensure cricket remains a central part of school life.
The Cricketer gathered entries and compiled the leading lists, working alongside former England star Lydia Greenway.
The Cricketer magazine editor Huw Turbervill said: “It has been incredibly heartening to see schools cricket making such a comeback after a very different 2020. Of course, not all schools’ programmes have been the same due to varying restrictions, facilities, and many other understandable reasons but what has been consistent across the spectrum is that the dedication to the game in schools has, not only remained unaffected, but increased.
Jack Myers – Director of Cricket at Dunottar commented:
“We are highly committed to inspiring our pupils to discover a love of cricket. It forms a central programme on our sports curriculum, so we’re delighted to receive recognition for our dedication to the sport”.
