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, 2013 and 2017 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. We surround ourselves with remarkable people and have amazing pupils! OUTSTANDING 2010 -2017 !!!“

The enthusiasm of the staff impacts positively on the pupils, who respond by being keen and eager to learn.

The headteacher, staff and governors are wholly committed to ensuring that pupils achieve the best possible outcomes for pupils, both in their academic studies and in their personal development.

This is what our Duke of Edinburgh Award guests thought of their recent visit to CGS!

Due to the next phase of building works starting soon...

our Reception has moved!

The new Office/Reception area is located in the 6th form Conference room, along with our Family Support Worker. You can access Reception by entering the 6th form through the door opposite the main gate into CGS.

Bear with us as these changes take place, we are trying to make it as smooth as possible!
