There could not be a more exciting time to join King’s College, as we celebrate another year in partnership with the Somerset County Cricket Club (SCCC).
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Somerset Cricket Scholarship, for September 2018/19 entry.
This is open to girls aged from 10 to 13 (currently in years 6, 7 and 8) of all levels and abilities, and attracts a remission of up to 50% of the day fees.
Our Sporting Ethos
The school’s sporting ethos is built on the ideals of a healthy and balanced lifestyle, respect and discipline, and of course, enjoyment. Some of our pupils are performing at county or national levels, others play for our B, C or D teams, but all throw themselves into their sport with gusto.
Cricket scholars can expect to attend regular individual and group training sessions, strength and conditioning workshops and video analysis classes.
Winners of the U15 Lady Taverners Cup 2017
With a growing list of sporting alumni, we are proud to work closely with former pupils turned sporting superstars, Jos Buttler, Maddie Hinch, Tom Banton and many others.
Girls’ cricket at King’s keeps going from strength to strength, with pupils training regularly throughout the year.
The recent opening of our Sports Performance and Cricket Centre (SPCC) has opened many doors for our players, who practise under the guidance of our specialist coaches
and sports staff. Our girls’ team have enjoyed huge success in recent years, progressing to the regional stages of the Lady Taverners U15 competition and winning the Broderick Cup for the last two years.

Inspiring the Next Generation of Female Cricketers
Based at SCCC, local team Western Storm are already inspiring the next generation of female cricketers. We will soon be hosting their development sessions in our own newly built indoor cricket facility. Along with aspirations to follow in the footsteps of former pupil Georgie Adcock (Somerset Ladies), our girls will be eagerly monitoring Western Storm's progress.
