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 second top school by The Sunday Times (November, 2022) and recognised as a leading school in the North by Tatler Schools Guide. Our outstanding academic achievements also regularly see us place as one of the top performing schools in Teesside.
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.

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.
