Cricket Academy


Castle View Cricket Academy aims to introduce primary school students to cricket before providing them the opportunity to join our secondary school provision, which is designed to create successful life-long cricketers.  Cricket is then used as a driver for educational engagement, from which academic attainment is built upon.  At its core Castle View Cricket Academy provides young people with the necessary skills to succeed not only in sport but also in the wider world.          

A word from the Principal

At Castle View Enterprise Academy we take sport very seriously; as a means to develop not only health and fitness but also as a driver in the promotion of social and moral wellbeing.  We have achieved significant success, specifically in the area of cricket, and feel suitably confident in extending our in-house provision in to the primary sector. Many of our students have developed their skills not only in cricket per se, but crucially in the areas of attendance, engagement and learning.

A word to Prospective Members

“The Castle View Enterprise Academy cricket programme is an outstanding scheme.  Cricket as a sport provides a unique opportunity to develop skills and attributes that will serve players well throughout their lives.  The facilities, personnel, coaching environment at the Academy are first class.  The training is comprehensive and supportive allowing everyone to develop as their ability allows.  The match programme gives players an opportunity to cut their teeth in the middle where it counts.  I am sure everyone will thoroughly enjoy their involvement with the Academy.  The Cricket Academy at Castle View Enterprise Academy is the first of its type in Durham.  I would like to wish everyone the best of luck and urge as many people as possible to get involved.  Cricket is a great game I am sure you will have a fabulous time whatever your involvement is.  I am looking forward to seeing you on a pitch or in the nets soon.  Hopefully one day someone from the Academy will join the professional ranks here at Durham CCC... Good luck”.
