What the school says...

'You have enabled all our children to have the sort of education we hoped for them: one which made the most of their various talents and gave them the opportunity to develop their personalities in an environment which by encouraging respect for others promoted self-respect as well.' Pocklington School Parent
Pocklington 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.
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.
