Terrington Hall one of the UK’s top cricketing schools

Terrington Hall School has been named as one of the best schools in the country for cricket after a nationwide selection process by The Cricketer magazine.

The Cricketer carried out an “exhaustive” survey of state and independent schools to arrive at its 2023 Schools Guide, which names the top 100 senior, top 50 prep/junior and top 20 all-girls schools for cricket. It judges schools on an extensive set of criteria, which include a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.

Our cricketing provision includes outdoor and indoor cricket nets and beautifully-kept pitches. Alongside cricket for boys and girls as part of the curriculum, we offer private coaching year-round and regularly host masterclasses from cricketing greats. First-class Sri Lankan cricketer Ashen Silva and former first-class cricketer Martin Speight are among recent visitors.

Last summer our Under 11 cricket team reached the English Schools Northern Final and won two regional tournaments. Three of our girls played in the Yorkshire Under 13 Cricket squad and three boys played for North Yorkshire Under 11s. Many boys and girls also play local club cricket.

Headmaster Simon Kibler said: “It’s an honour to be included in The Cricketer’s 2023 Schools Guide, and a reflection of our coaches’ hard work and dedication. I take huge delight in watching our boys’ and girls’ talent blossom as they take advantage of our superb facilities. They also obviously enjoy the game, which is great to see.”

The Cricketer is the world’s oldest and best-selling cricket magazine and produces its Schools Guide annually. Editor Huw Turbervill said: “I‘ve read some inspirational stories working on this year’s guide. These young cricketers really are tomorrow’s heroes today.”

The 2023 Schools Guide is included alongside the December issue of The Cricketer magazine (on sale from November 18th) and will be available digitally on thecricketer.com from 9th December.

A friendly, unpretentious school where children come from a range of backgrounds.
