Prep

Lots of children join Yateley Manor between Years 3 and 6. For this reason our transition and pastoral arrangements are exceptional. Children feel welcomed very quickly when they join the school. 

We endeavour to develop happy, confident children with a love for learning celebrating their individual achievements and talents, whilst nurturing areas that need developing. By adopting this philosophy, children are encouraged to become independent, confident individuals, ready and able to embrace the next phase of their learning journey.

Years 3 and 4

Classes in Years 3 and 4 are in their own section of the school where all the classrooms are closely linked to each other. Children have the extra benefit of being able to access all the facilities across the school including Art, Cookery, French and Music.  We actively encourage participation in sports and the children will begin to participate in inter-school matches.

There is a creative, nurturing and vibrant learning environment in Years 3 and 4.  Our aim is to provide children with school days full of new experiences, exciting learning and a huge number of activities and extra-curricular clubs. We strive to create a fun, hands-on learning experience for every child. These range from a visit to an ancient Celtic farm to a Roman legionnaire putting the children through their paces.

Years 5 and 6

As children move into Years 5 and 6 at Yateley Manor they extend and accelerate their learning with access to subject teaching specialists across the entire curriculum. Every lesson is taught by a subject specialist and children move about the campus from one room to another.

There is a strong emphasis on pastoral care across the school and this is evident in Year 5 upwards with very small tutor groups (typically 10 in a group). The Form Tutor stays with the Form for two years which offers the opportunity to develop very strong relationships. The Form Tutor is the first point of contact for general matters but parents are welcome to contact individual teachers directly for more specific information.

For children moving on to senior schools early, at the end of Year 6, a thorough programme of learning is in place to support them with entry examinations.

To experience life in our Prep, Years 3 to 6. We invite parents and pupils to tour our school by booking onto an Open Day or an individual tour with the headmaster.

 

Yateley Manor Senior School Expansion

Exciting news! We are thrilled to share that starting from September 2024, Yateley Manor will be progressively introducing additional year groups up to Year 11.

This fantastic development allows your child to seamlessly continue their education at Yateley, providing a solid foundation before making choices for sixth form or college at the age of 16. The reception of this announcement has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are already receiving applications for Years 7 and 9 for September 2024 and beyond.
