Welcome to Yarrells ...
Yarrells Preparatory School provides excellent opportunities for children to enjoy learning in an
enriching environment indoors and outdoors. We promote high academic standards, integrating the
performing & visual arts and sport within a dynamic and extensive curriculum.
A member of the prestigious Independent Association of Preparatory Schools, Yarrells takes boys and
girls between the ages of 2 and 13. The School is housed in a Georgian mansion and contemporary
classroom buildings encircled by the gardens, fields, courts, pool and woodland of its own estate
in the town of Upton, near Poole. In these beautiful surroundings, we have the scope to make the
most of learning indoors and outdoors.
We believe that every child has something valuable to offer and that in our setting, guided by
expert staff, we can find and nurture a child’s gift and give each the confidence to tackle life’ s
challenges with spirit and determination.
Come and visit us to discover more about the life we love at Yarrells.
