Sport Sport is an important part of the curriculum and co-curriculum for pupils of all ages. Exceptional facilities and a ‘can do’ attitude inspire pupils to enjoy a tremendous range of sports at Pocklington School. Our inclusive approach provides opportunities for all pupils to compete at a level appropriate to their abilities so they learn about teamwork, personal challenge and how to win and lose well as part of a supportive team. Professional coaches are an integral part of our dynamic sports department. They complement our excellent staff by delivering specialist support and keeping us up to speed with the latest methods and practices. Our professional level Strength and Conditioning Programme allows us to monitor students’ performance and progress and alert us to injury risk. Teams play against schools from across the region and regularly reach the finals of regional and national competitions. Individual talent is recognised and supported, which has resulted in several students going on to play professionally. “Thanks to all of you at Pocklington School who have supported, guided and encouraged him with his rugby this year.
