Barford St Peter's is a "Chance to Shine" School
Chance to Shine believe that every young person in the country ‘...should have the opportunity to play and learn through cricket.’ Here at the WCB we strongly agree with this statement and are working in partnership with Chance to Shine to try and spread the power of cricket throughout Warwickshire.
Thanks to the Chance to Shine Schools' cricket campaign, over two million children are playing cricket today. This is amazing but why stop there? Cricket brings people from all walks of life together, teaching life skills that will stay with them forever. We want to continue to see this number rise, inspiring schools and communities and spreading a great appreciation and love for our sport.

During December and January the WCB have been visiting numerous schools around the county with England Women’s cricket star Tammy Beaumont. Tammy support with coaching, training teachers and delivering assemblies has been outstanding. Her enthusiasm and love for the game has seen her become an immensely popular figure within various schools around Warwickshire. She has offered expert advice to children, signed countless autographs and answered hundreds of questions. We are very grateful for all her help and are pleased to say that she will continue to play a major role in the development of cricket throughout Warwickshire.
