The match – which saw a team of teachers playing against departing Year 11 students – helped raise £310 for the Calderdale-based mental health charity Healthy Minds.
The event also included stalls run by parents and local businesses, and younger children enjoyed a non-uniform day and fun activities to help collect funds.
David Horsfall, the school’s senior head of house and event organiser, said: “The whole day was a fantastic event but particularly the cricket match held on the front field, which always stirs up excitement and a very lively atmosphere!
"It was fantastic to see so many people from the school and the community turn out to support such a wonderful organisation”.
Every year, the school raise money for different charities around the world but always focus on a local charity during the summer term.
