Head’s Welcome

Ms Sally Weber

Yarrells is a gorgeous school, full of happy children who love to learn. Our relationships with the young people we teach are so important. We work really hard to foster happiness, self-confidence and aspiration for life in every individual here.

My absolute passion is to provide an outstanding educational environment for children; one that is warm, nurturing and provides space for a broad curriculum. All the doors of opportunity are open for our young people and the children at Yarrells are able to explore their identities and their talents fully so that they grow both their confidence and their skills to meet life’s challenges with relish.

Come and see us at Yarrells:

the best education for your child.

We offer daily appointments to come and see the school.  During your appointment you will have a tour of the school and grounds, this is a wonderful opportunity to see the school in action, the facilities and meet with staff.  You will also meet with our Head, Sally Weber, who will be able to help you make the right decision for your child’s education and future.

To arrange this please contact our Admissions Registrar, Hannah Plane, on 01202 622229 or email admissions@yarrells.co.uk.

My son absolutely adores going to school and often announces how much he loves school! The biggest special thank you to everyone in the EY team!! I recently said to him ‘My favourite days of the week are the days I spend with you’. He replied ‘my favourite days of the week are when I go to school!’

He really wouldn’t be the confident, independent and caring little boy he is now if it wasn’t for each and everyone one of you at Yarrells! I have seen first hand how amazing you all are and I don’t just mean the teaching staff!

The Yarrells is an awesome school, I loved it there when I was little and now my little girl is enjoying every second of her experience there. Each child really is treated as an individual and that’s one of the many things that makes the school so special.

We moved from another school to Yarrells and we are absolutely delighted with the school. The family environment and care the teachers show the children is incredible. The sports facilities and opportunities are fantastic alongside the academic support. It is a distance from where we live but it is absolutely worth it and the minibus service is brilliant. We are thrilled with this school and can honestly say it offers the best start and school environment for our son.

Yarrells is such a special school. My son started in reception and my daughter in the nursery. They both absolutely thrived here and I can’t recommend this school enough.

Thank you for everything you have done for our twins.  We feel they have been welcomed & looked after with open arms and we are really happy they are both loving it at Yarrells.

I would like to thank all the staff at Yarrells School who have once again managed to help my once shy, nervous little girl believe she can be more than average and achieve great results in many aspects of her young life and for that we salute you all.  A wonderful, caring and supportive school.

Yarrells is such a special school and feels part of my family. I love that it is not only about academics but brilliance in sport, the arts and entrepreneurship. During Year 7 & 8 she turned around in confidence and with academics. I can’t recommend the school highly enough.

We are exceedingly happy with our decision to send our son to Yarrells School.  From what we have already seen the standard of care and education he is receiving is exceptional and most importantly he loves it.

What can I say…  fantastic and amazing! Happy staff & happy pupils!

Lovely school. Fantastic teachers. Can’t praise it highly enough!

We have been extremely happy with our school choice and the proof comes in having happy kids, with a confidence to look people in the eye, shake their hand and communicate.  Thanks to the Yarrell’s team for instilling that confidence.

I like the ethos of the school which allows children to learn and develop their potential in a happy nurturing environment.

We wanted to send our thanks and gratitude for providing our daughter with such a wonderful environment in her first weeks at ‘big school’.  She is so happy at Yarrells and thriving under the care of the Early Years team.  She is full of wonder and excitement about her days there and looks forward to going to school.  We can’t ask for much more. Thanks for this.

Yarrells is an awesome school, I loved it there when I was little and now my little girl is enjoying every second of her experience there. Each child really is treated as an individual and that’s one of the many things that makes the school so special.

This school is simply wonderful. My kids adore it and I’m very proud of all they have achieved.
