St Martin's School

An independent, co-educational preparatory school.

Meet the Staff

A key factor for the success of any school is the quality of its staff.

The St Martin’s School team are a dedicated, highly qualified and enthusiastic community of teachers. They hold a wealth of experience and interests and deliver stability, cohesion and commitment to life in the classroom.  Our staff are committed to our children.  We are a small school where every teacher knows every child and, in turn, every child knows every teacher.  Our children feel safe, well cared for and respected.  They know that they matter and their opinion and feelings are important.

St Martin’s School is filled with the joy of learning.
