Saint Martin’s provides education for day girls between the ages of three years and eighteen. Our Mission and Aims can be viewed here.
There are close links between the different educational phases of the School and Saint Martin’s operates as one School sharing a distinct ethos. Many of the teaching staff work in more than one area of the school and this is particularly the case in the PE, Music, Dance, Drama and MFL Departments where staff teach across the age groups.
Girls from Nursery (aged 3 years) to Year 2 are taught in Alice House. Here they have access to an enclosed and safe play area within the extensive school grounds. In Year 2 the girls become integrated into the Junior School during the course of the Summer Term before moving to that building for Year 3.
The Junior School accommodates Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and although the girls are taught mainly in their form rooms, they have lessons in specialist areas of ICT and Music, as well as making use of facilities on site such as the Arts Centre. They have their lunch, as do Year 2, in the main school Dining Room.
The Senior School is located adjoining Malvern Hall and girls begin in this section of the school from Year 7. With extensive specialist teaching areas in all subjects from Drama to Food and Design and Technology, the girls follow a broad and balanced curriculum.
The Sixth Form have their own teaching area located in the old stable block and coach house of Malvern Hall. A modern link between these two buildings forms an impressive Sixth Form common room. For specialist facilities, as for Science for example, the girls use the facilities of the Senior School.
“Throughout the school, teachers have robust subject knowledge. They are dedicated and committed professionals who give generously of their time to assist pupils further in their learning outside the classroom.”
