Welcome from the Headteacher
My name is Ian Smyrk and I am delighted to introduce you to St Martin’s School.
It is a very special school that must be seen to be fully appreciated. The individual development of our students is a personal journey where they have every chance possible to succeed and flourish. Our ethos of Be The Best You Can Be is built upon three distinct strands which are woven into every aspect of life at St Martin’s: Traditional Values, Learning For The Future and Outstanding Personal Achievement.
Opportunities to learn and enjoy beyond the classroom are endless through a huge variety of extra-curricular clubs, educational trips and many varied student leadership opportunities. It is important that St Martin’s is at the centre of the community and working closely with parents we ensure that our students are proud to come to St Martin’s and make excellent progress.
I have a firm belief that all our students can be amazing and have potential they may not yet realise. It has never been more important that they not only succeed in formal qualifications but also develop the personal skills and attributes needed in the 21st century. Through an outstanding learning experience and the relationships forged with their peers and our excellent staff, our students become confident, responsible, extremely well-rounded young people who can choose their own future and are ready to make a positive difference in the world.
