    Careers and networking

    The Development and Alumni Office works closely with the School’s Careers Advisor to provide a range of support and networking opportunities for current students and Old Pocklingtonians (OPs), whatever stage they are at in life. This includes careers events, help and advice on work experience, a mentoring programme and a dedicated LinkedIn Group. The programme is constantly developing and draws on the kind support of current and former parents, OPs and Governors and staff who willingly give up their time to help, further strengthening the strong links across our community.

    If you would like to be involved in our careers and networking activities please contact Rachel Dare on or Susan Kay on 

    Launch of the Pocklington School Foundation Careers & Business Network - 27 November 2017

    The official launch of the Pocklington School Foundation (PSF) Careers & Business Network took place at Pocklington School in November 2017.

    The PSF Careers & Business Network is open to everyone in the wider Pocklington School community, including current and former parents, Old Pocklingtonians, current and former staff and supporters. Its aims are to help each other thrive in a highly competitive world and, by working together, to help inspire our students, and each other, for life.

    At the launch, guests heard about how to join our Network, and also full details of its aims, objectives and opportunities. 

    Our very special guest speaker at the event was Old Pocklingtonian, renowned businessman and Owner/Chairman of Gloucester Rugby Club, Martin St Quinton (1965-1975).  Since leaving Pocklington School in 1975 to study at Durham University, Martin has had a remarkable career in the worlds of both business and sport, including being named Ernst and Young Technology Entrepreneur of the Year.  We were delighted that Martin joined us at the launch and shared with us his thoughts on what has inspired him throughout his career.

    We will also be hosting future Network events at School, in Leeds and in London - check our social media for latest news.
