What our pupils think the coolest thing about Ms Yerbury is.

Always has a smile on her face; a kind and warm-hearted individual with the ability to add another dimension to our learning, super engaging! 

Ms Yerbury finds a creative way to make every lesson feel fun! Her love for biology comes through and this passion for the subject is what makes her such a phenomenal teacher. The focus on how to tackle exam questions in live lessons has hugely improved my academic performance in biology and her electives were an engaging way to explore beyond the syllabus. Most of all, after sessions with Ms Yerbury, we always leave smiling!
