Yarlet is proud to be a non-selective school. Pupils of all abilities are encouraged to achieve to the best of their abilities and this is something on which we work very hard. Our most able pupils are stretched and challenged and, where appropriate, are set extremely demanding targets such as aiming for academic awards at some of the most selective senior schools in the United Kingdom.
Pupils with learning difficulties are supported by our Learning Support Teacher who produces individualised plans in conjunction with parents and other members of staff. This helps to ensure that support is targeted and effective.
Although our pupils surpass themselves academically, their achievements are not limited to the classroom. Other outstanding achievements include:
Over the past ten years, 100% of pupils have secured a place to their first choice of senior school and a disproportionately large number of pupils leave Yarlet with academic scholarships or exhibitions. Pupils have secured awards in areas such as art, sport, music or all-round performance. Over the past five years, an extraordinary and impressive average of 52% of pupils have left with an award to such schools as Repton, Shrewsbury, Wrekin, St Dominic's Priory School, Denstone, Rugby, Cheltenham Ladies' College, Wycombe Abbey, Adams' Grammar, Moreton Hall, Newcastle-under-Lyme School and Stafford Grammar.
