Yarm School is a co-educational independent day school in North Yorkshire. Founded in 1978, Yarm School established its Prep Department a few years later, following public demand for traditional preparatory school education. [1]


In Year 3, pupils benefit from a broad curriculum, encompassing a varied range of subject areas, including English, maths, science, computing, music, French, PE, sport, art and DT. 


Through the outdoor education programme, Yarm Prep allows pupils to enjoy adventurous activities and grow in confidence, independence and self-esteem while taking risks within the boundaries of the school’s safe environment.


Numerous facilities are on offer, complementing the provision of outstanding, all-round education. These include modern suites for IT, science, DT, art & music; a floodlit multi-use all-weather games area and a spacious school hall where school productions take place. [2]


The most recent ISI report rated Yarm Prep School as ‘excellent’ in all assessed areas, confirming the school’s strong reputation for providing the best possible circumstances for learning and personal growth. Its friendly and tolerant community encourages children to understand education as a lifelong experience which aims to awaken them to their responsibility towards local and wider communities.
