My family and I have just experienced the most magical trip and were so fortunate to have the pleasure of spending quality time with our dearest friends and their guests at the famous “Silver Spur Ranch” in Idaho.

My personal GOAL is for Yep Schools Direct to be working with a school in Idaho Falls or Jackson Hole by Autumn 2017, giving me an extra incentive to return to this beautiful part of the world.

If you are a Yep client school or parent and wish to experience the ultimate cowboy experience the Tomlinson family would love to hear from you.

Manningtree High ‘World Record Attempt”

Yep Schools Direct were priviledged to play a part in potentially creating new history at Manningtree High on Tuesday 14th March 2016.

Months ago, the maths department at Manningtree High School were discussing ways they could celebrate world pi day (held on March 14th every year), by doing something a little unusual and memorable for the students. They were delighted that Guinness World Records accepted their application for ‘the world’s longest human representation of the digits of pi’. To break the world record they needed to have at least 250 participants; so as this was a pi world record they decided to attempt it with 314 students. This was a historic day for the school, as they’ve never had anything like this happen in the past.

Students from Years 7, 8 & 9 with the best effort and attitude towards their learning were lucky enough to be selected and the Rotary Club of Manningtree Stour Valley kindly volunteered 9 people to help steward and oversee the event. Hopefully, when all the evidence is submitted and verified, Guinness World Records will confirm that they have been successful. Not many people can say they’re a world record holder, but it’s something that many of their students will now be able to boast!

Yep feel honoured to have been invited to photograph the exciting event and our team are all very excited to hear the results..

2015 Thank You

Yep Schools Direct would like to say a huge New Year thank you to our fabulous Yep team, parents and our client schools.

We experienced our busiest term ever over the Christmas period, with orders coming through right up until deadline, and even beyond! However, we strive to deliver a fast and reliable service for all our customers no matter the circumstances, and we’re extremely proud to be able to say that every single Yep client school received their photos back by Tuesday 15th December 2015, also as many as 98% of our late orders were posted direct to parents before Christmas.

We’re a small family business with a simple philosophy of offering ‘quality photos at more affordable prices’, something we couldn’t achieve so regularly without your help. A total of 18 family members played a part in helping Yep succeed and achieve our deadlines, and we’ve been completely overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity this term. Again, a massive thank you to all our team and family for their uncompromising effort and dedication.

We look forward to showing our client schools our brand new range and can’t wait to work with you all again in 2016.

Wishing you all a brilliant and successful New Year
