Cricket is played by every boy in the school and the key skills are taught from an early age (Year 3) in the form of kwik cricket.
Boys start to play with a hard ball in Year 4 and the skills keep being fine tuned and by the time the children reach Year 6 we regularly have boys entered for county trials. Our senior boys are going on a cricket tour to South Africa this year and we also play a number of South African teams during the season. As with all sports at The Oratory Prep School every boy is expected to play for the school and the facilities we have are excellent. The school invested in some new cricket nets three years ago and these are used in all training sessions. We also have indoor nets in the sports hall with a bowling machine and this facility is offered as an activity. As with all sports at The Oratory Prep School cricket is played to build confidence, make friends and most importantly, to be enjoyed.
