Welcome to Cricket Green School

Newsletters Ofsted 2013 Calendar Easy Fundraising Friends of Cricket Green Are we open?

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Cricket Green School.  We were once described as “Like school. Only better!” and that's what we like to believe we offer to all our pupils and families.


Cricket Green is a thriving and outstanding special school, which offers learners the opportunity to grow and develop in an environment where they and their achievements are valued. Pupil well being is at the heart of all we do as we strive for all our learners to be happy, develop skills and competencies for life and grow in to secure and confident young people taking their place in society.


In 2010 and 2013 Ofsted judged us as an “Outstanding School”, praise doesn’t get any better than that but it hasn't stopped us striving to do better to continue to make Cricket Green a happy and outstandingly successful school.“

Ofsted 2013



The outstanding teaching is successful because of the dedication and high levels of skill displayed by teachers and support assistants.

A HUGE congratulations to Benjamina Ebuehi, the sister of one of our pupils here at Cricket Green, for making it through week five of the Bake Off!!!


This week was Pastry week and not the easiest! After two hard challenges, Benjamina bounced back strongly for the showstopper with well-flavoured amuse-bouches that the judges loved!!


We’re already looking forward to next weeks Botanical episode and are all rooting for you here at Cricket Green School Benjamina!!
