Yeaman is a happy, safe place where the children can play and relax away from the busy routine of the school day. They make good friends with other children in their own year and also build strong relationships with the children in other year groups.
We aim to ensure that every child is well known by at least one teacher and their Head of House.
The Christian ethos of the School is supported in house assemblies and in our treatment of each other. Respect is a central quality which we emphasise within the House: self-respect in the way that we try to do our best; respect for the property of the School and others; and finally respect towards each other – treating each other with kindness and tolerance.
House competitions in sport and music are an important part of the school year and are a chance to cement house identity.
Yeaman House is named after Sir Ian (David) Yeaman who was educated at Dean Close School in the early 1900s. He became a partner of Rickerbys Solicitors, Cheltenham, from 1922 and lived at “The Moat House”, Uckington.
There are currently 84 pupils in Yeaman, aged between 7-13. Yeaman recently celebrated its 50th Birthday Anniversary. Our unique mascot is the rat, an animal of opportunism and determination!
