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.

Please quote YSD2017.

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..

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

Michael Vingerhoets & Tracie Moore

Another light-bulb idea from Yep Schools Direct, the first and only school photography company in the UK to have a company themed children’s advert – and we wish to keep it that way… Our open minded/adventurous team have spent thousands of hours brain-storming fresh, fun and empowering new ideas…

For more info on video promotional adverts please contact the Yep team.


In January 2015 Yep Schools Direct asked all client schools to kindly complete a feedback form…

We are pleased to announce the winners of the feedback draw –

  1. Cedars Upper School.
  2. Murrayfield County Primary School.
  3. Rothwell Junior School.

The Yep Team are over the moon with the results, 94% of client schools returned the feedback form – and 100% would recommend YSD to other local schools. We thank you all for the high scores and positive comments, which will ultimately continue to help shape the future of Yep Schools Direct.

We continuously thank you for your custom and look forward to sharing more Fresh ideas very soon.

Best wishes

Colchester Villa FC sponsorship

Colchester Villa Youth Football Club are a charter standard youth football club, providing football in the community for boys and girls of all ages! They provide football for all Primary School ages as well as a number of Secondary School ages.

Their teams compete against other local clubs in Colchester and the surrounding areas. The club was formed in 1975 and has been growing ever since, with 21 teams set for the 2014/2015 season. Part of their initiative is sending coaches into Primary Schools to give a taster of what their sessions are like and to attract new players, boys and girls of all abilities, to their club.

All of their Mini-Soccer, 9-a-Side and 11-a-Side teams participate in the Colchester and District Youth League. They also have Development Squads from Under 5’s to Under 6’s, who train and play friendly matches against other local sides in preparation for entering the Colchester and District Youth League set-up at Under 8’s. They are Affiliated to the Essex County FA.

Yep Schools Direct believes it is vital to create links with Schools and Clubs in the local area to widen the opportunities for kids in our community to learn football, which is why we are proud to sponsor Colchester Villa Youth Football Club.

Barnardo’s is one of the UK’s leading children’s charities, working directly with over 200,000 children, young people and their families every year. They run over 900 vital services across the UK, including counselling for children who have been abused, fostering and adoption services, vocational training and disability inclusion groups. Every Barnardo’s service is different but each believes in the potential in every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.
