Lewis Reeder has been selected to The Emerging Players Programme which is a forerunner to the England Cricket Board’s Player Pathway.

Three of our senior hockey players (Joe Roy, James Cross and Mia Bartram) were invited to trial for the England U16 and U18s national squads. This is a significant individual achievement for all three pupils as well as being a strong reflection of the hockey programme available at Norwich School.
There are another five Norwich School pupils in the England Hockey Performance Centre, which is the step before England selection.
Jake Garside took part in an England U18 Training Camp at Bisham Abbey in late October. The squad featured the top 24 players nationally with the aim for all players selected in the international fixtures next March.
