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.

Hi All


In these challenging and difficult times its essential we continue to pull together in the CGS family way.  We are all challenged, the dangers around us. The one certainty in all of this is that is, and will be, life changing.


It is a chapter in our lives and in the life of CGS. And each chapter has a beginning, middle and end that makes up the bigger story. So let’s walk this journey together, and show each other the respect, support and love we value in our school community. School staff will continue to do everything they can during this time of school closure as we know it, to support our children, young people and families.


As the office is closed now you can reach us on and someone
