Cricket

Cricket is a popular sport amongst pupils at Mount Kelly and the school boasts an impressive fixture list. Pupils benefit from professional coaching, a number of beautiful pitches, artificial nets and a Sports Centre which allows cricket to be played throughout the year. Cricket is delivered in games sessions at all ages in the summer term and extra training is available in one of the multiple net sessions offered throughout the week. 

Boys who train hard receive the honour of a Mount Kelly Cap. These select few who represent the first team are rewarded with their personalised, numbered cap that represents their dedication to the school and their achievement on the field

MCCF Cricket

Mount Kelly is proud to be working in partnership with the prestigious Marylebone Cricket Club Foundation (MCCF). Mount Kelly was recently  nominated as an MCCF Hub, joining 38 other Hubs around the country. The aim of the MCCF Hubs programme is to boost cricketing opportunities for talented children from state schools in the UK. Specialist sessions include technical, tactical, strength and conditioning and game based learning. The cricket training is free of charge for state educated children in Year 7 (11 to 12 years old) and if interest is high, trials will be held to select participants. The high quality coaching for the Hub is delivered by Brenden Worth, who has been coaching cricket for many years and has won the Outstanding Services to Cricket Award for his community engagement coaching. Mount Kelly is delighted to be supporting the development of cricket and young people in the local community through the MCCF programme.
