Cricket at King's has always been at the forefront of the school's culture and traditions. It currently has the status of being a Centre of Cricketing Excellence.
The school has also been awarded the status of being one of the first MCC Foundation Hubs, an initiative which will allow local young cricketers to access the brilliant coaching and facilities that King's can provide. It has been a huge success so far and continues to emphasise the school’s growing cricketing reputation.
With a long-standing relationship with Somerset County Cricket Club, King's is delighted to be renewing its partnership, along side King's College Prep.
In 2019, King’s sponsored players Eddie Byrom, Nathan Gilchrist and King’s College Prep School parent, James Hildreth. Currently we sponsor First XI players James Hildreth and Tom Banton.
Both King’s and Somerset County Cricket Club have a long tradition of sporting excellence on the field and have played a vital role in the development of young sportsmen and women in Somerset for over 100 years.
