Although a young school, Yarm School embraces many of the traditions and features found in the best independent schools. Founded by a group of parents, the School has always greatly valued close liaison with its families, seeking to bring out the best in each individual child. It offers small classes, taught by very well qualified teachers who are passionate about their subjects. It believes strongly in high quality pastoral care and in the value of extra-curricular activity.
Our aim is to provide pupils with the skills they need to develop into adults who will contribute positively to society. To this end it is important to us that all kinds of skills and abilities are honed within each individual - a Yarm School education is about far more than just academic achievement.
Each pupil is strongly encouraged to take part in at least one extra-curricular activity. There is a huge range of clubs and societies which meet either at lunch-time or after school on a regular basis. Over 50 activities take place each week, as diverse as Canoeing and Chess, Horseriding and Beekeeping. We believe strongly that every pupil should develop hobbies and interests; not only are they a source of much happiness at School, but they also develop skills and interests which will stay with the pupil for many years.
