Pocklington School

Founded in 1514, Pocklington School (11-18) and Pocklington Prep School (3-11) have a long history of delivering excellent all round education for day pupils from 3-18 and boarders from the age of 7.

Our approach to learning and development is shaped around the spiritual and physical well-being of each child we educate.

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. Our 65 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 balanced, fully-rounded and confident adults who are inspired for life.

The town of Pocklington is in the north of England in the East Riding of Yorkshire, 12 miles east of the historic city of York and 20 miles from the city of Hull. It is about four hours from London Heathrow Airport by car or train, or two hours from Manchester Airport.
