Yateley School consists of four houses named after significant British people: (Charles) Darwin, (Emmeline) Pankhurst, (Florence) Nightingale and (William) Wilberforce. This is after the controversial school hierarchal decision to introduce four houses to the system in 2015 as opposed to the original 3: (Matthew) Arnold, (Joseph) Lister and (Sir Isaac) Newton in order to benefit the school and its students. 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.
In 2016, Year 11 had achieved the school's highest GCSE results in the past four years.
Yateley School's Dance Team won the UK Global Rock Challenge in 2015 after winning the national finals in Milton Keynes.
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. In April 2015 a new £1 million project was launched to improve the school's 'A Block' which consists of Science facilities and Humanities. The students were moved into temporary buildings placed along the A Block Playground until the refurbishment was complete. It was completed in April 2016. The school's main hall has also been renovated recently.
