Working in partnership with Northamptonshire County Cricket Club and under the guidance of their professional coaches, the Cricket Academy provides an environment for students to develop their skills to a higher level while continuing with their education.

Teams regularly take part in British Colleges, British Colleges and Universities Sport competitions and fixtures against other schools.

Students are encouraged to complete the England and Wales Cricket Board Coaching Assistant Award and/or the Coach Award, as well as a first aid certificate, functional skills and Personal Learning and Thinking Skills, in order to improve their overall employability.

As one of the first such cricket partnerships in the country we also offer the potential for talented school leavers to follow an Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE).
