Pupils make consistently good, and at times outstanding progress. - Ofsted 2015
St Martin’s school is an Independent, Co Educational school for pupils aged 3-11 years founded in 1920.
Our Lower School encompasses Preschool, Reception and Year 1. The Early Years are used to encourage and foster each child’s love of learning and to develop emerging Literacy and Numeracy skills. We believe that learning should be fun and consistent. Long-lasting attitudes towards schooling are nurtured here.
As children progress through Middle School and on towards Upper School their strengths are recognised and cultivated. We instil a love of learning and a strong desire to achieve exceptional standards in all areas of learning. We recognise that preparing for the 11+ exams are an integral part of learning in upper school and exam preparation and interview skills are introduced in Year 5.
St Martin’s School is an exceptional environment in which your child can begin their educational journey. Boys and girls learn in a small, supportive, secure and stimulating environment and move on to some of the best schools in London at 11+. We offer a broad Curriculum delivered by our highly dedicated, experienced teachers. Our team treat each of our pupils as an individual; to be the best that they can be. We encourage them to become independent, questioning and creative thinkers.
Alongside our Curriculum we are delighted to be able to offer a multitude of after school activities encompassing the arts, sports and languages.
Our Motto is quite simple, ‘Ex Parvis Magna Fiunt’; ‘From small things great things grow.’ A strong academic start in life will provide the foundations for a confident, adaptable and successful life.
Finding the right establishment for your child’s future is an extremely difficult proposition for a parent. You want them to be happy and nurtured in school and yet they also need to develop a love of learning which will carry them through life and deliver exceptional academic opportunities for them in a competitive world.
