About St Martin's

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I hope that you will get the feel for a school that values academic performance and personal development in equal measure.  Over the last five years the proportion of students who have achieved significantly above average GCSE results, by any measure, has improved greater than that found nationally and now places us amongst the top performing comprehensive schools in Essex and the country.  The school also has an outstanding array of extra-curricular clubs and activities, numerous trips and visits and an excellent reputation for sporting and performing arts prowess.

What cannot be measured in league tables are the values which we reinforce in our students and which contributes significantly to the school’s outstanding ethos.  Visitors are always struck by how well behaved and smartly dressed our students are.  They comment also on the warmth of the relationships that students form with each other and staff. This relationship with staff helps to underpin teaching which is of the highest quality and coupled with outstanding pastoral care ensures that our students achieve highly.  As a result, students leave St. Martin’s School equipped with the knowledge and skills to enable them to become valued members of their community.
