Pocklington School welcomed a special visitor yesterday, as The Duke of York added a royal touch to the school’s 500th anniversary celebrations.

Staff and pupils at the school had the honour of meeting Prince Andrew, who was visiting on the occasion of the Biennial Inspection of Pocklington School Combined Cadet Force (CCF).
