Welcome to Cricket Green School

Newsletters Ofsted 2013 Calendar Easy Fundraising Friends of CGS 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.

Message from Celia Dawson, Headteacher

It is a cold, rainy morning. Twenty past nine, to be exact. The bride receives the letter that will change the path of her life forever. This is the letter that makes time stand still. The letter that ignites her hatred and fuels her desire for revenge…


Cricket Green's Youth Theatre have been working on 'A Bride's Tale' which is a response to Great Expectations. They are performing at Wimbledon Library Theatre Space on Sunday 4th, Sunday 11th and Sunday 18th of December.

They have been working really hard and produced an excellent piece of drama together. The show starts at 5pm and it is completely free so please come along and support if you can!
