St Martin's School

An independent, co-educational preparatory school.


St Martin’s EYFS class caters for children aged 3-5 years old. We are open from 8:10 am to 5:30 pm during term time. We offer 15 and 30 hours of funded childcare.

At St Martin’s we believe that happy and joyful children are more receptive to learning and when they have this confidence in themselves they achieve great success. Our objective is to ignite a deep passion and enthusiasm for learning in every child, achieved not only through enriched experiences but also through a comprehensive and high quality education supported by an exceptional level of care. At St Martins we achieve this by Continuous Provision supporting and ensuring every child’s need and interests are met.

We are very proud of:

  • Enthusiastic, highly qualified, nurturing team, who work hard to deliver an enriched curriculum.
  • Small class size.
  • Strong focus sessions on numeracy and literacy.
  • Engaging lessons in knowledge and understanding, expressive arts and design, personal social and emotional development and language and communication.
  • Enhanced Early Years curriculum including subject specialist teaching in music, PE and RE.
  • Enriched play which includes baking, drama, coding, computers and science.
  • Wellies Wednesday, where children get the opportunity to explore the outdoors at our local park in structured well planned and enriched lessons.
  • Planned trip to support learning every half term.
  • Self-serving morning snack.
  • Freshly made, nutritious balanced meals prepared by our chef.

Our EYFS children benefit from being part of the wider school where they are supported and nurtured by the older children. We provide a gentle but assured curve in their learning, which lays the foundation for their future development.
