Pupils play MCC

Pupils were delighted to welcome members of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) on Wednesday 9th May.

The players were impressed by the enthusiasm of the Downside boys and enjoyed using our magnificent grounds. Spectators are always welcome to come and enjoy the cricket, sample the splendid match teas and enjoy the new deck chairs at the Pavilion, kindly funded by the Parents Association.

Additionally, our Head of Cricket, Alfonso Thomas, and Head of Girls’ Games, Emily Edwards, also paid a visit to our young friends at Farleigh School, last week. Cricket at Downside is really on the map! 

To learn more about sport at Downside, come to one of our forthcoming open days.
