Yarm Preparatory School is an integral part of Yarm School with its own Head and facilities. Boys and Girls are welcomed into the Nursery at age 3 and continue through the Preparatory School until the majority transfer to the Senior School at age 11. There are considerable educational benefits to being a 3-18 school.
Children are encouraged and nurtured in the Preparatory School, where favourable pupil: teacher ratios and close pastoral support enable us to bring out the best in every child. As well as specialist teaching from age 3 in French, music, PE and games, pupils thrive on the huge and unparalleled range of extracurricular opportunities which includes the introduction of residential visits from Year 3.
Children thrive in our warm and welcoming environment. They experience a happy and purposeful atmosphere where there is always a ‘buzz’ of activity and where learning is a pleasure. Self-confidence is developed, along with educational challenge and valuable social and leadership skills.
Don’t leave it too late to come and take a look! We often hear parents of older pupils say, ‘I wish we’d brought our child earlier – we can’t believe the difference that the Prep School has made’. Experience this ‘Yarm effect’ for yourselves, and come and see us; we look forward to meeting you!
