REPTON IS NAMED IN THE CRICKETER'S BEST SCHOOLS FOR CRICKET GUIDE 2024
Repton School is delighted to announce that once again the School is featured in The Cricketer's Schools Guide 2024 - with an increasing number of state schools among those featured.
This year's guide features the top 100 senior, top 50 prep/junior and top 20 all-girls schools for cricket in a bumper 164-page supplement.
2024'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: "Our 2024 Schools Guide celebrates the best cricket programmes in state and independent schools across the country. The rise of women’s cricket in schools really has been a joy to behold. It is a pleasure to read the write-ups."
Headmaster Mark Semmence proudly acknowledges Repton's inclusion in The Cricketers Best Schools Guide 2024, commenting on the school's rich cricket history. He highlights recent achievements, including U18 and U15 Girls' teams becoming National Champions and curent Reptonian Harry Moore becoming the youngest debutant in Derbyshire County Cricket Club history. Semmence also expresses excitement about the appointment of Martin Speight as the new Director of Cricket in January 2024, praising Speight's exceptional coaching skills and anticipating transformative experiences for Repton pupils under his guidance.
The Cricketer researches and produces the Schools Guide annually, with the 2024 edition being supported by Durant Cricket – one of the country's leading suppliers of cricket ground equipment.
Cristian Durant, managing director of Durant Cricket, said: "At Durant Cricket, our relationship with The Cricketer holds immense value. Once again, they've showcased the outstanding commitment and coaching standards upheld by schools nationwide.”
The 2024 Schools Guide is a bumper 164-page supplement that's included alongside the December issue of The Cricketer magazine.
