What we offer

Thomas Telford School offers Cricket as part of their summer curriculum programme and we have a regular cricket session 3 timetable for all year groups. We have many Club, District and County cricketers throughout the school allowing us to compete with Schools that have a much larger cricket programme. We aim to support all students who have a passion and talent for the sport as well as encouraging others who wish to experience cricket as an alternative to their winter sports.

Cricket has always been a very popular sport at Thomas Telford School with many local cricket clubs set up as club links for the school. Many of our players play in local leagues and we are very proud of their successes.


We enter the Telford and Wrekin District School Indoor cricket competition for Under 12’s and Under 13’s, which are for non-County players as well as the following County Cricket competitions:

  • Under 12 David English/Bunbury Cup
  • Under 12 David English/Bunbury Cup Plate
  • Under 13 Internal County Competition
  • Under 14 ECB/ESCA National Schools Comp
  • Under 14 ECB/ESCA National Schools Comp Plate
  • Under 15 ECB/ESCA 20/20

  • Session 3 can be on the 2G or 3G surface

Session 3 opportunities

We have age group sessions throughout the Summer term and these can be indoors or outdoors. We work on all technical aspects of the sport and put these into practice through games.
