We are delighted to say that 2020 is St Martin’s centenary year and we have therefore set up a committee to organise our 100th Birthday celebrations in July. If you would like to be involved in this event or have any ideas, photographs or anecdotes that you would like to share, we would welcome your contact at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Martin’s School was founded 1920 in a house in Langley Park, in the dip of the road alongside a stream which ran down to The Broadway and into Silk Stream. Unfortunately, it was subsequently destroyed in the 1940’s bombings. Eventually St. Martin’s School outgrew that accommodation and moved to its current location in Goodwyn Avenue, Mill Hill.
Miss Joss took over the ownership and headship in 1947. She remained in that position until 1973 when Mrs Gillian Murray purchased the school and remained for the next twenty one years. Mrs Angela Wilson became the owner and Headteacher in 1996 and developed the strong love of Music and Art that we continue in our curriculum today. Over 20 years later, in December 2016, Mrs Wilson announced her retirement and Dr Jason Walak became the new Headteacher encouraging children to have a growth mindset to learning and growing the school in numbers once again. Mrs Mbah became our current Headteacher in April 2019 and has worked with the St Martin’s community to agree and develop the values tree based on both our rich history and current educational practices.
