Hartington and Fitzherbert have joined together to bring the

Derbyshire Cricket Board to their schools.

The objectives  of the six sessions are to:

  • Engage more children in high quality cricket coaching and games based learning across the country.

  • To develop transferable fundamental movements and cricket skills needed to play a range of sports.

  • Create strong club/school links that provide further opportunity for participation.

  • Educate children on Health, Social Cohesion and the Spirit of Cricket.

The first three sessions Fitzherbert Key Stage 1 children joined Hartington to experience developing agility, co-ordination, balance, speed and also making new friends. This was followed by an after school club where both schools pupils were invited to attend.

Read some pupils evaluation:

The next three sessions will see Hartington’s key stage 2 pupils travel to Fitzherbert. They will join key stage 2 pupils from Fitzherbert to develop their knowledge and understanding . of the game.
