Yateley School is the largest secondary school in North East Hampshire. The school teaches over 1500 students aged 11 – 16, and the attached sixth form college caters for ages 16–19. The school had its latest Ofsted Report in 2010.[2]

Yateley School contains three houses, Arnold, Lister and Newton. Pupils in Arnold have a purple stripe on the collar of their jumper, while pupils in Lister have a green stripe and those in Newton have a yellow stripe. On Wednesday, January 7, 2009, headteacher William Sarrell announced that he would leave Yateley School in July, and in September, Mark Jackman took over the post. Jackman has made a few new rules which attempts to improve the quality of work from pupils, and has confirmed that he will not be changing the pupils' uniforms.[3]

In Ofsted report it is noted that the Sixth Form made significant improvements after a new Director of Sixth Form was appointed (shortly before the 2008 Ofsted inspection).[4]

School Campus[edit]

Yateley School has a range of facilities including a swimming pool, drama studios, a library, a sports hall, a gymnastics hall, dance and music studios, tennis courts and three large playing fields.[5]
