Glamorgan Cricket & Cricket Wales can help your school use the power of cricket to provide high quality PE, and improve numeracy and literacy. Cricket can be played in various flexible formats and lends itself to developing the core multi-sports skills required for children to be physically literate. Additionally, there are various opportunities to use the global and inclusive nature of cricket to improve numeracy, literacy and contribute to other areas of the curriculum within your school.

The 16-19 year old age bracket is important in cricket, as players often experience changes in their personal lives which can have an impact on their enjoyment of the game. Cricket Wales and the ECB are investing resources in retaining and recruiting players within FE by providing the opportunity for students to enjoy their cricket with their friends, at their college.
