Brentwood School has once again been named one of the UK's top 100 cricketing schools by the world’s best-selling cricketing magazine ‘The Cricketer’.
Brentwood’s inclusion in the prestigious Schools Guide 2020 came at the end of a long and exhaustive selection process which saw a record number of schools submit entries for a coveted place in the top 100.
The prestigious list includes schools across the country, from Bedford to Bolton, and from Dulwich to Durham. Each entry was judged against extensive selection criteria, including the quality of facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
Brentwood has strong links with Essex CCC and the School’s list of illustrious cricket professionals includes former Essex batsman, Brian Hardie, Ashes hero Geraint Jones, and the current incumbent, former Essex batsman Jaik Mickleburgh, who is still scoring heavily for Suffolk.
The Cricketer magazine editor, Simon Hughes, said: “The Schools Guide is, as ever, a fantastic publication that celebrates schools’ cricket and gives deserved praise to all those teachers and coaches who put in the hard work to develop our future club, county and international cricketers.
“Having watched many schools matches this summer I am pleased to report that the standard of cricket programmes and the level of passion for the game is as high as ever.”
