Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation has been supporting the education and development of children and young people since 1986. Last year our inclusive programmes supported the health, education and emotional wellbeing of 1200 disadvantaged young people.
Young people are equipped to tackle the barriers in their lives
“The whole Arundel experience is a first for many of our students. These children come from areas where the pressure to join a gang is relentless, the opportunity to be a child again is a relief. I regularly see complete transformations in my students, they lose that defensive look, they relax, smile and laugh. For some it is just the sheer boost in their confidence that is a joy to behold, and this can be regularly referenced on our return. Many colleagues and parents have reported on seeing a change in many of the students who are lucky enough to visit Arundel”.

Young people have the skills and confidence to succeed
“There are also countless opportunities to teach life skills to our population of pupils who have language and communication difficulties, including autism. Our accommodation at Lodge Hill is the perfect setting to further develop life-long social and personal skills.”

Young people can improve and maintain their mental and physical health
“Our visit to Arundel embraced all aspects of our school curriculum providing children with endless opportunities of engagement both mentally and physically. They were avalanched by learning opportunities on every step they have made with bespoke and tailored cricket programme and the surrounding environment. Their independence and confidence have exploded on many levels of their school and personal life, which has been noticed by their parents and teachers.”
