We are delighted you are considering Yarm School for you and your family. We are proud to be recognised as one of the leading schools in the North East for our impressive academic results and outstanding facilities. However, we offer so much more than an excellent academic education: we educate for life.
We have put together some frequently asked questions to help guide you through our admissions process. From arranging a visit to our scholarships and bursaries, find out more below:
Yarm School is one of the top schools in the North East of England. We were recently listed as the third top school by The Sunday Times (November, 2019) and placed as the top performing school in Teesside for our outstanding A-level results in 2019.
We aim to provide a nurturing environment where your child will thrive both inside and outside of the classroom. Values are encouraged that ensure our pupils become adults who will contribute positively to society. We also help children develop the attributes and skills sought by employers so that they are equipped for life beyond school.
Activity Lessons, Outdoor Education, Sport, Music and Drama all play extremely important roles in school life. The opportunities on offer coupled with our caring, friendly and mutually supportive environment encourage pupils to step outside their comfort zone and discover new talents and interests.
We are located in Yarm in the North East of England and serve a wide catchment area. Our pupils join us from across the North East and North Yorkshire, including Stockton, Middlesbrough, Darlington, Richmond, Thirsk, Wynyard, and Hartlepool.

We would be thrilled to welcome you to the School so you can experience our unique learning environment for yourself. We have regular Open Mornings which give you the opportunity to tour the facilities, meet our staff and pupils and get a feel for what life at Yarm School is all about.
Our main whole school Open Morning happens in September and the other in January. In addition, the Prep School holds an Open Week in February and another in May. Read more about our upcoming Open Events or pre-register.
If you cannot attend an Open Event we would be delighted to arrange a visit during the school day. To request more information or arrange your visit, please fill out this form.
The School’s main entry point is at the start of the academic year, however, applications are welcome throughout the year and are subject to availability of spaces and timing. Boys and Girls are welcomed into the Nursery at the start of the term in which they will turn three years old.
To apply for a place at Yarm School, you should complete our Application Form and return it to the Admissions Secretary together with the £60 registration fee.
The Application Form can also be located at the back of our Information For Parents booklet, along with our key admissions information.
The School is academically selective and, broadly, admits those who are performing at the nationally average standard and above. Most pupils progress through the School until they leave at 18, but progression between sections of the School is subject to satisfactory academic progress and behaviour.
The entry assessments vary for different age groups, from informal assessments in the Pre-Prep to more formal assessments for entry into the Senior School. Read more about our Entrance Assessments.
Offers for a place at Yarm School will differ depending on the age of your child:
Yarm School is keen to attract pupils of considerable potential who will make the most of the opportunities on offer. We offer Scholarships and Bursaries to those entering First Year (Year 7) and Sixth Form pupils. See the Scholarships and Bursaries page for more details.
We do hope that you will visit us and experience for yourself what no website can fully convey: the happy, supportive and purposeful atmosphere that is Yarm School.
