Dr Huw Williams, Headmaster at Yarm: “2022 has been a vintage year for pupils’ results at Yarm with these strongest ever GCSE results and record outcomes in public examinations for our A Level students.

These outstanding results reflect the determination, perseverance and ambition of our pupils and we are so proud of them all. Furthermore, they are also a strong affirmation of the quality of teaching and support given to pupils at Yarm in their academic subjects but also the pastoral care and support they received from their teachers. On the back of excellent remote learning provision the pupils have fully embraced the unique opportunities available at Yarm.”
