Cricket

Cricket at Woodbridge School is hugely popular with both boys and girls, and enjoys an enviable reputation on our local circuit. We have achieved much success over the years, regularly winning many of our matches against other schools, and the number of students we attract is continually on the rise. Our beautiful grounds allow for fantastic matches that incorporate the traditional atmosphere of cricket with the modern game.

Giving boys and girls a chance to play at the highest level

Our bespoke year-round programme gives students the opportunity to develop a range of essential skills that will allow them to develop their talents and significantly improve their sporting abilities. We have weekly coaching sessions with Suffolk county coaches who assist with our cricketing development.
