At Yarlet we strive to create and maintain an environment where children are happy, secure and challenged to achieve their personal best in all areas of school life.
Children attend Yarlet between the ages of 2 and 13, when they leave as confident, responsible young adults who have learned the importance of excellent behaviour, good manners and respect for others.
We place great emphasis on all-round education which allows children to discover and develop their individual talents be they academic, sporting, artistic or musical. The wonderful grounds are home to the games fields, astro-turf pitch, sports hall, swimming pool and wildlife pool, which are used and enjoyed by all the children.
