Head Photo"Since its foundation in 1514, Pocklington School has inspired generations of young people. Exciting opportunities and challenges in all aspects of school life enable individuals to develop the self-confidence necessary to go on to achieve their personal aspirations." Mark Ronan MA - Headmaster

Pocklington is a thriving independent school, 12 miles east of York, providing outstanding day and boarding education from 3-18 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.

The unique spirit of Pocklington is built on strong relationships between pupils, teachers, support staff and parents, based on shared aims and values.

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.

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 50 acre campus offers excellent facilities for sport, CCF, music and drama.

In Autumn 2017, our new £3m Art and Design Technology Centre opened, which has every facility to encourage pursuit of traditional arts and crafts, as well as provide cutting-edge equipment for digital and computer design, and manufacturing technology. The innovation and cross fertilisation of ideas the Centre promotes are increasingly valued in society today.

We aim to inspire our pupils for life, helping develop an inquiring mind and the self-respect they need to emerge as capable, adaptable and resilient young people ready to make a real contribution to society.
