An Inspiring Curriculum

The academic curriculum at Pocklington is deliberately broad, exposing our younger pupils to a wide range of subject disciplines whilst enabling our older pupils to tailor personalised learning programmes from a variety of subject specialisms.

Subject content is carefully selected to ensure that pupils develop key learning skills and the ability to 'think like an expert' whilst also acquiring subject-specific knowledge and understanding.  Small class sizes, experienced and enthusiastic teachers, and specialist facilities all help us to broaden our pupils' horizons, elevate their ambitions and deliver learning of the highest quality.

While much teaching takes place in mixed ability groupings, core subjects are taught in ability-based sets which are gradually introduced during the Lower School and continue to the end of GCSE study.

As pupils progress to GCSE and Sixth Form study, a robust programme of careers and subject guidance and support helps them to select subjects that best fit individual interests and aptitudes.
