Trent has established itself as one of the best cricketing schools in the Midlands. The school prides itself on developing talent from within the school.
Cricket is played by all pupils in Years 7 and 8 and increasingly by girls; then by the majority in Years 9 and 10, all in the Trinity term. Those who continue to enjoy the sport will represent the school through Years 11 to 13. Individual honours are regularly achieved by boys in all age groups. The school works closely with Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire County Cricket clubs with boys playing within their Academy system. Teams compete in the National Schools 20/20, the National Schools Cup and County Cup Competitions.
Developing a positive approach to cricket is extremely important. Pupils have an opportunity to develop their skills and techniques through indoor winter nets. Regular fixtures for A, B and C teams are played and where inter-school competition is not possible, then internal ‘Team’ competitions are run. Participation levels within the game are high and large numbers of Trent pupils play cricket outside the school at local clubs.
Cricket Tours are regularly offered to pupils, with the highlight for the U15 age group entering the Sports Arabia Arch Trophy in Dubai on a bi-annual basis. Senior teams compete in Spain, Malta and Sri Lanka.
The Head of Cricket, Scott Boswell, a former Northants and Leicestershire County cricketer, is the first Level 4 Coach in the country at School level. Developing coaching awards is actively encouraged for staff and senior pupils to develop their roles within the school.
Scholarships are available for Sport and we warmly welcome enquiries from students who are looking to enhance their Cricket development through Trent. Please contact Scott Boswell for further information about Cricket and Cricket opportunities at Trent College firstname.lastname@example.org
