SPIRIT OF POCK – OLD POCKLINGTONIANS The Old Pocklingtonian Association (OPA) provides former pupils with a lifelong link back to the school and is an active network stretching back through generations. OPs use the OPA to reconnect with their peers, forge professional links and to share careers advice. We hold regular events at school and at other locations throughout the country. Annual OP sports matches are a tremendous opportunity to catch up with schoolfriends, attracting many spectators as well as players. OPA membership lasts a lifetime.
