Cokethorpe is known for the strength of its community, built around a robust pastoral system, extended by our parents’ association and alumni group.


The pastoral provision at Cokethorpe is one of the great strengths of the School and has directly evolved from its ethos of being community and family focused.

 Parents’ and Friends’ Association

The Cokethorpe Parents’ and Friends’ Association (CPFA) consists of all parents and guardians of current pupils, current members of staff and our governors. They have an expansive social events programme, adding considerably to the School’s community feel.

The Cokethorpe Society

The Cokethorpe Society is the association for former pupils, staff and governors. It is a global network consisting of thousands of people who have left Cokethorpe, from the 1950s right through to our most recent Upper Sixth leavers. The Society has its own events calendar bringing members together, whether back at School or elsewhere.

The Cokethorpe Fund

Your gifts to the Cokethorpe Fund will enable the School to offer means-tested bursaries to brilliant pupils, develop the School estate and its popular co-curricular programme.
