Yarlet School | Where it all begins

Where it all begins


Bright, happy faces, bursting with enthusiasm for the day ahead. Learning is fun!  This is the first impression which greets visitors to Yarlet's Nursery and Pre-Prep Department.

Whether joining the Nursery at the age of 2 years, or at a later stage, children soon settle into the caring family atmosphere which characterises Yarlet and have the opportunity to learn and play in magnificent surroundings.

At Yarlet, we aim high from the beginning. Together with academic targets that will both stretch and develop our pupils, children begin to understand the importance of kindness, courtesy and respect for each other, as well as good manners.

Flexible finishing times are designed to meet the needs of busy parents.

The curriculum places strong emphasis on language and literacy, mathematical development and communication. There is a full academic timetable and specialist teaching is utilised in subjects such as Art, Games and Music. This, together with a daily games lesson, including professional tennis coaching and swimming in the summer, provides our pupils with a rich and varied education. Frequent educational visits also enhance this, to places such as living history museums and the seaside. We also make full use of the Yarlet grounds which encompass woodland, a nature reserve and large wildlife pool.

And so, at the age of 7, happy and confident, the children look forward to moving on to the phase of their Yarlet education.
