Welcome to RGS Cricket
Leaving a legacy on the pitch, in the record books, and in people's memories

Develop teams capable of winning the RGS Cricket Festival
It doesn't matter what your passion is at school - the camaraderie is the same. When hard working students, teachers and parents are united, the possibilities are endless.
Everyone should be aware of the values that the school represents. We share a responsibility to behave in a way that seeks development and mastery, without sacrificing the values and enjoyment we hold so dear.
Resilience, Grounded, Selfless, Honest, Work ethic; this is The RGSHW Way.
When Saif played for Northamptonshire in their non-first-class fixture at Durham UCCE's Racecourse ground in May 2014 he became the first 15-year-old to play for the county. At the age of 16, Saif achieved the individual festival school record of 230 runs in a game, which formed part of his record breaking 476 runs during the 2014 RGS Cricket Festival. Nortnants soon offered him a three-year professional contract, and ahead of the 2015 season he shone for England's Under-17 against Pakistan U-17 in Dubai, scoring three successive half-centuries.
He made his debut in a county competition against Leicestershire in the Royal London One-Day Cup in 2015. Three more Championship matches came his way in 2016 including five wickets in a marathon stint against Leicestershire. He made his Twenty20 debut in 2017.
2018's first XI captain, Teddie Casterton was named Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year at Lords after a series of mind-boggling performances with the bat. He follows in the footsteps of the likes of England cricketers Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler in winning the award.
Casterton scored 1,423 runs with six hundreds and three fifties with a highest score of 267 not out, the second highest total ever scored in a schools 50-over match.
