Significantly, there is also a strong core of committed and enthusiastic coaches who help to deliver the cricket programme. In the second half of the autumn term and throughout the spring term selected players in Year 9 at St Paul’s merge with selected players in Year 8 at St Paul's Juniors to form a Junior Academy. This allows for more advanced and specific one-on-one sessions to take place for the elite junior players who may be involved at representative level outside of school.
Four Senior XIs, three U15 XIs and three U14 XIs represent the School on a regular basis. The 1st XI and 2nd XI play in a league, the other members of which are Hampton, KCS Wimbledon, RGS Guildford, Reed’s, St George’s Weybridge and Tiffin. In addition to these fixtures the 1st XI play Eton, Radley, Dulwich, Merchant Taylors and the MCC and take part in an annual festival at the end of term with The Leys, Monkton Combe and Fettes College.
There are five indoor nets within the Sports Hall complex and winter coaching is aided by the use of two bowling machines.
The 1st XI Squad went on tour in Cape Town in February 2016 and the U15 Squad have previously toured Sri Lanka.
