About Yarrells

Yarrells Preparatory School is an independent day school and nursery for boys and girls aged between 2 and 13. Located in the town of Upton, near Poole, Dorset, Yarrells 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.





Our next open morning will be in the Autumn term but you can contact our Registrar, Mr James Renwick, who can arrange a meeting with Mrs Linda Sharpe, Acting Headteacher and a tour of the school.


Yarrells School Happy Children

Greenwood Nursery

Give your child a head start at Yarrells…

As part of our Early Years department  we have introduced the Greenwood Nursery for 2 to 4 year olds that will lead seamlessly into Reception. The Early Years offers dedicated accommodation in the brand new, safe and Eco friendly building, ‘Greenwood’. The building is bright, comfortable and has well-equipped rooms which provide an ideal, stimulating environment for the very young.

Children in the Early Years are very important members of the school community and benefit from being immersed in our enriching environment. They learn through a wide variety of play and creative activities. They are encouraged to develop self assurance, independence and effective social skills. We offer a seamless transition through Nursery to Reception and upwards in a stimulating environment to start the foundations of learning within the EYFS.
