Facilities and Parkland
150 Acres of Glorious Parkland
As you enter the School gates, what first strikes you is the undeniable beauty of our extensive parkland setting. As you venture further, you will discover that there is a great deal more to Cokethorpe than the topographical splendour of the vista.
The Prep School
The newly completed Pre-Prep classrooms for Reception and Year 1 provide a dedicated space both indoors and out for our youngest pupils to explore and grow, opening directly out on to the parkland.
The Prep classrooms are fully equipped, with dedicated spaces for Art, Music and Drama, plus a delightful Prep Reading Room, whilst the pupils also make use of the Senior School’s facilities. Based within the showstopping Queen Anne Mansion House, the Prep School has an air of fairy tale about it, with grand and inspirational spaces in which to learn and to grow.
A Microsoft Showcase School
As a Microsoft Showcase School, the technological setup in each classroom is on the leading edge, with wirelessly connectable smart screens, and Microsoft Surface devices used by all teaching staff across the School, and by pupils in the Senior School, aiding the opportunities for collaboration and support.

The Senior School
The Senior School is based in purpose-built classroom blocks constructed to form quads, reminiscent of the Oxford and Cambridge colleges, evoking a sense of tradition and rigour. These are complemented by a more recently built library, with its own quad completed by the Dining Hall and Sixth Form Centre.
It is the facilities beyond the classrooms which particularly provide a unique experience for our pupils. Within the grounds there are shooting ranges, a climbing tower, a nine-hole golf course, wooded areas for outdoor education and a kitchen garden, alongside the more commonly found sports hall and fitness centre, and theatre.
The School’s parkland stretches to over 150 acres and accommodates two full size astro pitches, providing a year-round playing surface for hockey, netball and tennis. The extensive grounds also provide space for seasonal sports including six rugby and football pitches and three cricket pitches, with the golf course weaving its way around the grounds and the pitches.
“There’s virtually no stone unturned for facilities here.”
Senior School Learning
Academic success is focused on the progress of the individual with high expectations of excellence for all pupils. Our ambition at Cokethorpe is to help our pupils become better, more effective learners.
A popular choice for our pupils, Music at Cokethorpe is impressive as it is diverse, with everything from contemporary offerings to more traditional recitals and choral work.
The true flavour of a school is best found among the representations of school life, both the day to day and those moments that deliver something a little bit special.
