School of the Year: Park Junior School

Park Junior School in Wellingborough won the School of the Year Award. The school has used cricket to break down barriers, where 50 per cent of pupils come from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has a number of children who have recently come into the country without any English and some of these students have used cricket as a way to make new friends. They have also improved their language skills, self-esteem, behaviour and academic performance in the process.
