Sport is an enormously important feature of school life, playing a formative role in developing the all-round strengths of a Pocklington Prep pupil: self-respect and confidence, team awareness and physical fitness.
PE and swimming are part of the regular timetable with two separate sessions of field games on Tuesday and Friday afternoons each week. One of these is a coaching session and the other is devoted to matches and competitive team games. Pocklington Prep fields teams for football, rugby, netball, hockey, rounders, cricket, athletics, swimming, tennis, cross-country and trampoline. House sporting competitions also ensure that everyone is involved in team sports.
