Cricket in the Classroom is the Yorkshire Cricket Foundations Educational Flagship scheme and runs every Wednesday and Thursday during term time for key stage two primary school children across the county.
Cricket in the Classroom gives children the chance to get out the classroom that they are used to and have a unique and educational learning experience within the grounds of Headingley. The project has been very successful, running since 2009, with approximately 3,000 school children attending each year.
The action packed day runs from 10am – 2.30pm and includes a range of cricket themed activities in our East Stand classrooms, learning about Yorkshire CCC and what goes on at an international venue. The second half of the morning involves the participants taking part in a coaching session in the Yorkshire Cricket Centre.
After the group has had their lunch in the famous long room they are then taken on a tour of the ground which includes the Yorkshire Cricket Museum, changing rooms, 1st team training facilities and media areas.
Bookings are now being taken for the 2017/18 academic year. To book a place or for more information contact Beth on:

Cricket in the Classroom is a fantastic scheme and has become extremely popular with primary schools across Yorkshire.
