Our most important task at Pocklington is to maintain a supportive environment where pupils can explore, learn, grow and make mistakes in a community where they feel happy, safe, relaxed and yet purposeful in their learning.

This approach means that our pupils have the confidence to take on a wide range of academic, creative and sporting activities, alongside teaching that encourages curiosity and personal initiative to make learning enjoyable.
