Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour

2019 provides a wonderfully exciting year for cricket with the World Cup being hosted in England and Wales. To raise the profile of cricket in Bristol Gloucester Cricket Club will be running multi skill cricket festivals/introduction to cricket for Key stage 1 that will be linked to the World Cup. One of these festivals will be staged at City Academy, Bristol.

Not only will this festival be an amazing experience for young people but they will also have the actual Cricket World Cup trophy. The ‘ICC Trophy Tour’ is coming to Bristol during this weekend meaning school children will have the opportunity to see the actual trophy up close!

The primary school Key Stage 1 World Cup Challenge Festivals are new for 2018/19 and only being run in Bristol and Gloucestershire.

Once schools sign up and the 24 teams are confirmed, each school will be allocated one of the countries that are competing in the World Cup. Once each school has their country, there will be cricketing challenges set for each school and ideas around classroom based lessons linked to that country.

James Mooney, Specialist Leader in Education for the Cabot Learning Federation – Physical Education, said, “I think it is a fantastic opportunity for our students to be involved in something not only nationally recognised but internationally recognised. Having been selected to host this visit by Gloucester Cricket Club means they understand the passion we have here, not only for cricket but also for sport outside of school, in the local community.”

There will be a photo op at, City Academy, Russell Town Ave, Bristol BS5 9JH on Friday March 8th from 10am till 12pm.

Note to editors:

In 2019 the CLF will have existed for 10 years as a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). In the course of that time our federation has developed from a small Bristol-based secondary education partnership to an instinctively collaborative ambitious organisation of over 20 entities, serving the educational needs of 9,000 children and young people aged 3 to 19.

Our federation is sponsored by the University of the West of England and Rolls-Royce PLC. Our academies are based in three 3-19 clusters in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

We employ around 1,600 people in a range of roles designed to help children to be successful in their lives. We also rely on the time and commitment of over 200 volunteer governors, who share our values and ambitions for our schools and our pupils.
