Howzat! MES in UK cricket top 20


THE MARY Erskine School, (MES) has been awarded a place in the UK’s top 20 all-girls schools for cricket, in The Cricketer Schools Guide 2022.

The school has one of the largest cricket programmes for girls in Scotland, with over 160 girls playing the game.

It began in 2015 when PE teacher, Pippa Johnston, asked Cricket Scotland for their help in starting a sector-leading cricket programme for girls in the school.

Kirsty Nicholson, MES Head, said: “We are absolutely delighted. Cricket is a popular sport among the girls and our partnershi­p of dedicated staff and former pupils has proved to be a powerful one, giving every girl the chance to learn and enjoy cricket. We are deeply proud of those pupils that have represente­d their country but the real success is the sheer number of girls who are now taking part in this great sport.”
