Location Our safe, rural location in a friendly market town has easy access to the cities of York and Hull. With 50 acres of grounds on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Wolds, we combine extensive modern facilities with traditions dating back to 1514. We are warm, welcoming and provide the ideal environment to inspire your child for life. We are less than five minutes’ walk from the centre of Pocklington, with its independent shops, post office, banks, arts centre, cinema, cafes and restaurants. Our specialist teaching facilities are continually being enhanced to provide an attractive and stimulating learning environment. Facilities include a £3 million Art and Design Technology Centre, the purpose-built 300 seat Tom Stoppard Theatre, a 200 seat concert venue, an indoor swimming pool, and an indoor sports hall. In addition to 21 acres of grass rugby, cricket and hockey pitches, there are also two full-sized synthetic pitches which are used for hockey and netball in the winter and in the summer are transformed into 18 tennis courts. Pocklington benefits from excellent transport links with public and private bus services to the local community. National and international transport hubs are accessible from York which is 30 minutes away by car. 33
