The Cokethorpe Society

The Cokethorpe Society is the association for former pupils, staff and governors, with members more commonly known as Old Cokethorpeans. The Society is a global community consisting of thousands of people who have left Cokethorpe, from the 1950s right through to our most recent Upper Sixth leavers.

The Society’s events programme, social media, and termly emails help ensure Cokethorpeans enjoy a lifelong connection to the School and to one another.
