Welcome to Yarlside Academy

I am extremely proud to be Headteacher at Yarlside. In our school we take great pride in the high standards of achievement that we achieve across all areas of the curriculum

Our children are happy and confident individuals who enjoy coming to school. We excel in sport, provide extensive music and extra-curricular provision and deliver a vibrant creative curriculum, as well as having high standards of behaviour and excellent facilities.
Yarlside is graded as an Outstanding school by Ofsted, we are a National Support School and a Teaching School.
These are all accolades that continue to ensure that our staff team are constantly working hard to provide the best education for all of our pupils.

Please take a look around our website for more information or if you would like to arrange a personal tour to see us at work, please do not hesitate to contact school to arrange an appointment.

Outdoor Learning Areas

Here at Yarlside Academy, we take every opportunity to make learning come to life for the children. With this in mind, we make full use of our extensive grounds whether it be curriculum work, Forest Schools, sporting events or an exploration of nature.


Playtimes have become more stimulating with our playground apparatus. This challenges the children’s sense of balance and creativity.


Outdoor learning and exploration is a key part of early learning and development. The children are given opportunities to access a range of resources.


This area includes a variety of zones, each of which focus on a different aspect of nature. We also have a wildlife section.


Our playgrounds are not only an area where children socialise and interact with each other, but also practise and engage in competitive sporting activities.


What better way to add atmosphere and mystery to a story than telling it in the outdoors where sounds, scents and visuals help to bring it to life.


Our prize winning allotments are organised in family groups. Children from each class (Reception to Year 6) contribute to the planting and upkeep of them.
