Cricket at LWC provides opportunities for all boys and girls to relish the game of cricket, regardless of their level of participation, reflected by the school’s inclusion in the “Top 100 Cricket Schools in the UK (Cricketer Magazine)”. Our fixtures are challenging but enjoyable, with all players feeling part of a team environment.
