Facilities, accommodation and the care that Pocklington School Foundation takes of its pupils have been rated as good or excllent by overseas agents.
Fourteen agents recently visited the foundation - comprising both Pocklington and Lyndhurst Schools - on a familiarisation trip following the British Boarding Schools Workshop held in Windsor at the beginning of November.
During their visit, the agents were entertained by some of the foundation’s talented young musicians at its annual Winter Concert, after which they had the opportunity to chat with boarders at a buffet dinner.
Emily Frankish, communciations officer at the foundation, said: “Feedback from the agents who visited to tour the school and look at the boarding facilities unanimously indicated that they would be happy to send students to the school.” The agents came from countries as diverse as Belarus, Bashkortostan, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, China, Hong Kong and Estonia.
At present there are 92 boarders across the foundation, ranging in age from eight to 18.
