King Edward’s School continues to be named one of the UK’s top 100 senior schools for cricket by the world’s best-selling cricket magazine The Cricketer.
Cricket is the major summer sport at King Edward’s School. The school boasts outstanding facilities with an excellent 1st XI cricket ground at Eastern Road and three junior pitches on the school playing fields.
Practice facilities are also excellent with a four-lane all weather net complex, top quality grass nets alongside the 1st XI pitch, plus a three-lane Astroturf set of nets on the South Field. The sports hall also provides four lanes of nets and these nets are much used throughout the winter, during our extensive winter coaching programme (for ALL age groups). Our full-time cricket coach works with the boys throughout the year and we also make use of county players for additional coaching.
We run 13 teams from the 1st XI down to U12D level, with the senior teams and age group A and B teams playing full length matches on Saturdays throughout the summer term. On average the 1st XI plays 20 matches each season and also participates in a national 20/20 competition.
Each year, we host visiting teams from overseas and in recent years our seniors have toured the West Indies and our juniors have toured Dubai.
A large number of our boys represent their counties at age-group level. Our facilities are used by Warwickshire CCC for age-group matches and we have staged an England Blind Team Test Match.
