Pocklington is an inclusive, family focussed and academic school that offers incredible experiences inside and outside the classroom. From Prep School, which nurtures children’s natural curiosity, imagination and enthusiasm for learning, to the Sixth Form, where independent thought is prized, our pupils are encouraged to be resilient, resourceful learners.
Numerous co-curricular activities take place every day until 5pm, and each pupil is encouraged to pursue their own interests to help develop the depth of character and self-awareness to tackle life’s challenges on their own terms. Our sense of community, care for each other and pride in the school is tangible, and particularly evident in our outstanding boarding provision. Our Values and Virtues drive all that we do and mean our pupils leave with a deep sense of social responsibility and the ability to shape their own future.
Pocklington School lies 12 miles east of York in a safe, rural setting beside a friendly market town, on a 50-acre campus with good public transport links and a minibus pick-up service. Extensive facilities include a 300-seat theatre, new £3m Art and Design Technology Centre, an indoor sports hall, conditioning room and swimming pool, plus 21 acres of grass sports pitches and two full-sized synthetic pitches.
