It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website in the knowledge that it will provide a window of insight to the fantastic school we have here. I feel very privileged to be part of St Martin’s School and play a role in the lives of our amazing children, families and staff. The warm, friendly, family atmosphere and nurturing nature of the school enables everyone to thrive and master exceptional achievements.
We ensure that we fully prepare our learners as well-rounded young people with the awareness that eventually our children will be responsible for our world and as such it is important that they are thoughtful and able to make informed, rationalised decisions that consider perspectives different from their own. We encourage our children to be spiritual by asking and pondering over deep and meaningful questions. We facilitate interesting discussion and debates about these ‘big questions’ respecting and valuing different opinions.
I am a huge advocate of life long learning and the foundations of this are being sewn here every day as we provide opportunities for our children to become independent learners. The safe, secure and happy environment ensures learners can succeed to their fullest potential. Our children leave us at 11 with exceptional results, many with scholarship offers from the school of their choice, but even more than that, they are self-aware, confident individuals who excel in their own areas of interest and talents. We celebrate all achievements from sporting success and academic achievement to those tiny breakthrough light-bulb moments which connect and solidify learning.
Our pupils are empowered to solve issues for themselves; not just in a respectful way through restorative justice for behaviour, but also on a wider community scale. Our children are team players and can often be seen helping and supporting each other in their learning and play. Their selfless attitudes extend into charity work throughout our global community and this concept of the world as one is reflected in our multicultural ethos.
If this peek into our world of learning and laughter piques your interest and inspires you, please feel free to arrange a visit by contacting the school office. We would love to welcome you.

COVID-19 Update – We are currently operating COVID-secure policies to ensure the safety of our pupils and staff. At this time, this means restricting visits to prospective parents whose child(ren) would have a potential start date prior to or in September 2021. We are asking all visitors to sign and comply with our COVID procedures including: adhering to track and trace requirements; wearing a face covering for the duration of your visit and limiting visitors to adults only. We have created a virtual tour of some of the small group learning that was happening in school during the lockdown as an initial taster. This is available to view here.
