Our children excel in their learning. We build a superior curve into their learning from their first day at St Martin’s School. This sees them exceed their peers in all indicators. By Form 1 our children are a year ahead. Some children can be as much as 3 years ahead on standardised reading tests and arithmetic tests by the time they are in Form 5 or 6. This is achieved by small class sizes, target work and support throughout their education.
This curve begins in pre-school with 1:1 support and a wide ranging academic curriculum. We use child initiated but also adult led teaching to promote their learning. We enrich their play so it is focused on development and encourages the children to become active citizens of the school. Even at this young age, they are part of the school House system and meet in houses with their older buddies. They also sing and act in the termly school plays and productions.
