The largest number of Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall pupils to date has been selected for the Norfolk County Cricket squads.

Fourteen pupils – four girls and ten boys – were successful in this year’s county trials, and are now in training programmes ahead of this summer’s cricket season. Congratulations to Arthur C, Elliott H, Milly H-K, Nathan M and Campbell T (all in Year 8); Bertie C, Archie C, Grace HK, Alice H and Evie W (all in Year 6); Riley B, JC M and James A (all in Year 5); and Reuben Bird (Year 4).

We take enormous pride in the cricket programme on offer at the School for players of all abilities. Each one of our girls’ cricket teams made superb progress last season, with some notable wins and good development of skills.  The U11 team won all their games at the Horsford U11 softball cricket festival and the U13A girls paved the way for future teams as the first girls in the School’s history to play competitive hardball.

Our boys teams are regular winners of county titles at all age levels. Last season our U13 boys secured the County Cup, and also made it through to the National Quarter Finals finishing in the top 8 nationally, and the U11 team finished runners up at a Suffolk cricket festival and third in their group at the East of England Championships.
