Top 100 School for Cricket

Lancaster Royal Grammar School is delighted to have been named in The Cricketer magazine’s Good Schools Guide 2019, featuring the top 100 secondary schools in the country.

This announcement comes at the end of a hugely successful year for LRGS cricket following on from winning the Royal Grammar School Cricket Festival this summer.

Achieving this accolade is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff involved. It follows an exhaustive process which saw more than 350 schools submit entries to be included in the guide. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, with all the chosen schools having outstanding facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.

The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes commented: “This is a superb publication that serves both as an informative guide and as a tribute to all those teachers and coaches out there who are nurturing the talents of future club, county and international cricketers. I have been lucky enough to visit a number of school matches this summer, and am pleased to note that the standard of cricket, coaching facilities and enthusiasm for the game has been as high as I can recall. Congratulations to all of the schools included and please keep up the good work.”

The 116-page guide is bumper-packed with the regular December issue of The Cricketer (available on the newsstand from November 23). As well as appearing in print alongside the world’s No.1 cricket magazine, the guide will also be made available on The Cricketer website from Friday December 14.
