Pocklington School

"We’ll inspire your child for life."

Pocklington School is a warm, welcoming community with a dynamic pulse at its heart.

Founded in 1514, it has a strong tradition of encouraging independent thought, stretching and challenging pupils to find their own approach to learning within a supportive atmosphere.

Our emphasis on helping each pupil achieve their personal best and fulfil their potential is reflected in the fact that in 2017, 88% of students achieved entry into their first choice of university, and 8% into their second choice.

Young people flourish under our superb pastoral care, and boarding students enjoy a home-from-home atmosphere in friendly, comfortable boarding houses. An exciting co-curricular programme helps them develop individual strengths, as well as important life skills like leadership and teamwork, which are so valued in the workplace.

Pocklington School lies 12 miles east of York in a safe, rural setting on the edge of a small, friendly market town. It is an hour from Leeds Bradford Airport and less than two hours from Manchester Airport by car. York is two hours from London by train.

Our 65-acre campus has extensive facilities including a 300-seat theatre, a new 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.
