We are delighted to announce that all students graduating from the Yorkshire Cricket College have left with 100% pass rate.
The results, which included 76% receiving distinctions will allow leaners to proceed to university, start an apprenticeship or begin their journey to a career.
Despite the closures of schools and colleges across the country due to the COVID- 19 pandemic, students were able to continue with their studies and fulfil the college syllabus.
Yorkshire Cricket College tutors ensured measures were in place to deliver content remotely.
This included making sure students were still able to access online programmes such as their Microsoft Teams accounts.

“The support provided by the Yorkshire Cricket College’s delivery team throughout has been pivotal in achieving these record breaking grades for the college.
“Our students will be progressing to university, careers and apprenticeships and we wish them the very best of luck in their future endeavours.”
“We are immensely proud of our graduating students and the grades they have achieved. – Nick Robinson, the head of the Yorkshire Cricket College.
