The London Borough of Merton Council is thinking about all the

services it offers and buys for people with a learning disability –

including centres run by the Council, services purchased from care

providers and activities in the community. As part of this

engagement process, Merton Council are seeking the views of

young people aged 14 and above, and parents and carers of young

people aged 14 and above who might need support during the day

in the future

Merton have launched the Big Conversation, which went live on the 17th of May. The Big Conversation will be captured using online surveys. The survey links can all be found on the Merton website, and there is also an animated film, with subtitles, all about the Big Conversation.

"Like school... only better!"

Welcome to CGS!

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 !!!

About Us

Cricket Green School is a community in which we aim to educate and develop children, in order that they lead independent, fulfilled and happy lives.

We aim to enable pupils to make informed choices and to develop greater levels of independence together with an increased awareness of themselves as learners, as individuals and as members of their local community.

With this aim in mind,we work hard to ensure that each pupil has many opportunities during their school life to develop skills, qualifications and confidence.

We have a highly-skilled staff of teachers, assistants, lunchtime supervisors and office staff.

We work hard to ensure that each pupil has many opportunities during their school life to develop skills, qualifications and confidence. We aim for pupils to increase their employability options, use their leisure time and enable each one to make a contribution to their community.
