Inspection Reports


We are delighted to announce that St Martin’s has been accepted into the Independent School Association (ISA) and will be primarily inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) moving forward. ISI is formally approved by the Secretary of State for Education to inspect independent schools in England, which are members of associations affiliated to the Independent Schools Council. St Martin’s School is affiliated to the Independent Schools Council through its membership with the ISA. The Secretary of State’s power to approve inspectorates is regulated by statute and delegated legislation. The key provisions are in the Education and Skills Act 2008 (section 106).

Prior to this move, we were inspected by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (OFSTED). We are exceptionally proud of our most recent Ofsted report from January 2020.


We are delighted that they highlighted our “ambitious, broad and rich curriculum”; that “Mathematics, French and Music are taught especially well” and children “read confidently and develop a love of books”.
