Cricket is the School’s oldest major sport and is played throughout the summer term by the pupils. The school is blessed with a superb arena for the game on The Park being renowned as one of the most beautiful grounds to play cricket in the London area. The two other squares are surrounded by trees. Three senior teams and five junior teams play regularly on a local circuit of schools, enjoying the summer tranquility of the hillside setting and excellent practice facilities.
The school has the services of a professional coach, the ex Middlesex opener, Mr I.J.F. Hutchinson, who supports the well qualified teacher coaches and still retains strong links with Middlesex CCC.
The School takes its Cricket seriously along with all the other Sports that it offers. The School plays many of the local independent Schools and some from further afield. The 2008 1st XI were the most successful team the School had for 20 years, beating several sides including Aldenham, UCS, Haberdashers, John Lyon, Latymer Upper and QEB.
Players are regularly selected to represent Middlesex and Hertfordshire age group sides, and indeed England. Adam Rossington, now a recent old boy, has just secured a two year professional contract with Middlesex CCC and made his debut for the First Team against the Sri Lankan touring team.
There have been other cricketing events outside the summer term. Separate visits from Michael Atherton, Michael Vaughan and current Middlesex players Steven Finn and David Malan add to the cricket experience here at the School.
Pupils have the opportunity to Tour during their time here and there been several trips recently including La Manga in Spain and the Golden Triangle in India.
