Harrow County School for Boys / Gayton High School / Harrow High School and Sports College


Cricket has been played at the School since it was founded in 1911, and boys from the School have played at the Local, County and International levels.  Dr. Alexander Simpson, who was Headmaster 1946-65, was wicket-keeper for Scotland from 1924 to 1934.  George Hart was a professional cricketer and played for Middlesex from 1926-1939.  Recent cricketers, who were at the School when it was called Gayton High School, include Mark Ramprakash and Angus Fraser, who is currently Managing Director of cricket at MCC.

Our ex-cricketers are slowly banding together.  A few met in London, recently. It has been proposed that we celebrate cricket in quite a big way - a match in 2011, a table at the Old Gaytonians Centenary Dinner etc. Would all ex-cricketers who are interested please leave a message on the Guest Book.

We have collected many photographs and some articles and extracts from school magazines.  If you have more or can put names to some of the faces, please send information and scans to jeffrey@jeffreymaynard.com. :
