Following the Government’s decision to close all schools in the UK, Yarm School is currently closed to visitors. However, we would still love to hear from you if you’re interested in attending one of our Open Events!
If you want more information on the School, one of our Open Events or would like to pre-register, please submit this form and one of our Admissions Secretaries will be in touch with everything you need to know.
Here’s an insight into what you can expect at one of our Whole School Open Mornings…
You should come to the Senior School site between 9.30am – 12noon. Our Senior School is located in Yarm, North Yorkshire and can be found just off Yarm High Street, bordering the River Tees. We are easily accessible for people travelling from around Durham, Teesside, Wynard and North Yorkshire and are just a short bus journey away from both Yarm and Eaglescliffe train stations.
Here our Estates staff will be on hand to help you park on our school site.
All visitors to the Prep School will have the option to hop on our shuttle bus or walk up the hill. The Nursery, Pre-Prep and Preparatory School are located just outside Yarm High Street, across The Spital and on the opposite side to the Senior School.
Senior School visitors will be directed to the reception area in the Auditorium by our Sixth Form students.
You will have the opportunity to tour the school, speak to pupils and teachers and get a flavour of what Yarm School is really like. There is a timetable of activities throughout the morning, including science experiments, dance, drama and sport.
Our January Open Morning is slightly different at the Senior School. The Headmaster and Director of Studies deliver a presentation at 11.15 am with everything you need to know about joining the Senior School. Visitors are advised to arrive at 9.30am if they would like a tour before the presentation.
If you are interested in attending one of our open events, please complete our short registration form on the event page. You can also get in touch here and arrange a visit if you can’t make one of our events. Pre-registration is not mandatory for our Open Mornings and you will be able to register on the day.
Our Open Morning is open to prospective Sixth Form students too. As well as being able to get a feel for the School and the Sixth Form, you will have the opportunity to visit the subject departments you’re most interested in. Teachers and students will be on hand to answer your questions and talk further about life here at Yarm Sixth Form.
We also host a Sixth Form Information Evening in November. The Information Evening details the process of joining the Sixth Form, explores what life at Yarm Sixth Form is really like and showcases our outstanding A-level results. The Headmaster and Head of the Sixth Form also present more information about the subjects and extra-curricular opportunities on offer.
For more information about our Sixth Form, download our latest prospectus here.
There is a whole school Open Morning each September and January. Our Prep School also holds a number of Open Weeks throughout the year. There is also a separate Sixth Form Information Evening in November.
Open Morning is a fantastic opportunity to get a flavour of school life but we appreciate not everyone can attend. If you would like to arrange a visit, please complete the Visit Yarm form or contact our Admission Secretaries:
