Additional Information

Pocklington School delivers an excellent all-round education and a vibrant co-curricular life within a supportive and caring community, all founded on a 500 year tradition.

Set in a safe and picturesque rural setting, the school focuses on the needs of the individual, helping pupils develop into motivated adults who are valued members of society.

The unique spirit of Pocklington is built on strong relationships between pupils, teachers, support staff and parents, based on shared aims and values.

Unlocking an individual’s potential means fostering a culture that encourages successful learning and creative thinking while rewarding initiative and independence. It also means creating an environment in which pursuing personal passions outside lesson time complements the achievement of academic success.

Class sizes are small with teamwork at the heart of our approach. We are renowned for our emphasis on pastoral care, encouraging pupils to participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities. Our 64 acre campus offers excellent facilities for sport, CCF, music and drama.

Our ultimate aim is to give our pupils the support and freedom they need to flourish into fully-rounded, confident adults, who are inspired for life.
