Haberdashers’ Monmouth School named among the UK’s best for cricket

November 17, 2023

Once again, Haberdashers’ Monmouth School has been featured in The Cricketer’s Schools Guide Top 100 Senior Schools, recognising the best cricket programmes, tours and coaching in the UK. 

The UK’s best schools for cricket have been revealed in The Cricketer’s Schools Guide 2024 – featuring 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.

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, as well as available to purchase separately here.

The Cricketer would like to thank Durant Cricket for their ongoing support of our schools cricket coverage. For more on Durant Cricket, including booking a site visit, click here.
