We believe that happy children flourish at school. We therefore prioritise every child’s wellbeing and sense of belonging to our community for every step of their education here at Yarm Prep School.
Our School Values provide the framework for every child to lead a positive and fulfilling school life whilst nurturing the skills, attitudes and characteristics that will help them thrive in school and beyond. Whether they’re in Nursery, Pre-Prep, or Preparatory, pupils are taught to be ambitious and seize opportunities whilst not being afraid of getting things wrong. They also learn how to be resourceful through collaboration and are encouraged to be relentlessly curious.
We empower every child to take on responsibilities and become tolerant, respectful individuals. Above all, they develop a real sense of compassion for their peers and the world around them.
“Children are enthusiastic about the opportunities provided, reflected in the faces of both pupils and staff. Being bored just isn’t on the radar here. A school that shows learning can be fun as well – fast paced with plenty of activity underpinned with reflection and resourcefulness. These are happy, bright, confident children with lots of opportunities for responsibilities and welcome them with genuine enthusiasm and pride.” – Good Schools Guide review
