Founded in 1514, Pocklington School is a thriving independent school, 12 miles east of York, providing outstanding day and boarding education from 4-18 years. 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. 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 approach to learning and development is shaped around the spiritual and physical well-being of each child we educate.
The unique spirit of Pocklington is built on strong relationships between pupils, teachers, support staff and parents, based on shared aims and values. We believe that instilling a lifelong love of learning among pupils enables them to fulfil their potential and achieve long term happiness.
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.
Learning is fun and from the earliest years takes place both in the classroom and elsewhere around the school. Class sizes are small with teamwork at the heart of our approach. 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.
