Why Yarm?

  • Small class sizes, specialist teachers and outstanding facilities ensure outcomes for all pupils are exceptional.
  • All pupils have the opportunity to represent the school on the sports field and stage (numerous musical, dance and drama opportunities).
  • As a 3-18 school we were delighted to be rated the top grade, ‘Excellent’ for Prep and Senior Schools in the recent ISI Inspection (Feb 2022).
  • In 2022 Yarm School was ranked top school in Teesside and County Durham in the Sunday Times Parent Power league tables. Yarm, ranked 2nd out of all schools (across all categories) in the North East and 129th nationally. See our 2022 GCSE and A Level results here.
  • Yarm has easy access to the A19 making it ideal for parents travelling from Wynyard or commuting to work.
