The 'W H Hill Memorial Cricket Trophy' was an annually awarded sports trophy from 1947 to 2003, originally donated by J E H Hill in memory of his father W H Hill. The trophy was awarded for the best all-round cricket performance.

John Edward Henry Hill was a student at the School from 1944 to 1950. His father, W H Hill did not attend the College. The Trophy was first presented to R A Bell, the Captain of the 1st Cricket Team, winners of the APS Championship in 1947.
