Pocklington is an inclusive, family focussed and academic school that offers incredible experiences inside and outside the classroom.
About the school
We believe in encouraging pupils to seize opportunities from the broad range of activities on offer. Along with our approach to teaching and learning, these help to form the bedrock of our young Pocklingtonians’ character and grow the qualities that support our values. Our sense of community, care for each other and pride in the school is tangible. This is no more evident than in our outstanding boarding provision. At the heart of this ethos lie our Values and Virtues. They drive all that we do at Pocklington and mean our pupils leave with a deep sense of social responsibility and the ability to shape their own future.
