St Martin's School

An independent, co-educational preparatory school.

Our Facilities

We are small in stature but huge in heart.  Our children learn in small form groups which lend to a strong, nurturing family atmosphere. We have very secure grounds which are not over looked by roads or public view. This means the children are extremely secure when they are playing in the playground or involved in outdoor learning.

We have a beautiful, newly refurbished playground with an exciting climbing frame and fabulous new floor full of stimulating ideas such as the chess board and trike track. Our additional music room provides space for 1:1 peripatetic music lessons in a wide variety of instruments and the library which, as well as being used for form group reading sessions, is a calm space for pupils who wish to read in the morning or at break time.

We use the latest resources to support all areas of learning in all subjects.  We do not systematically follow published schemes of work as they cannot, by definition, be designed for our children. Our skilled teachers use a range of resources to plan and facilitate a bespoke curriculum and learning journey around each child.

The school has an interactive whiteboard in every classroom and we use these, along with laptops, tablets, raspberry Pis, control devices and after school clubs to support our children in becoming digital citizens.

We have a superb sport offer but recognising the space limitations of our site, travel offsite to fulfil this commitment. Using a large park, local hall space with a stage, private swimming pool and specialised gymnasium with our own qualified teachers and PE leader, allows us to access the very best equipment and instructors for our pupils to excel in games, athletics, dance, gymnastics and swimming. These facilities, together with our excellent program of residentials which covers the outdoor and adventurous element of the curriculum, ensure we can deliver a strong PE provision.
