Back to Latest News

An inspection by the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) was carried out on 25 and 26 April 2018. We are delighted to announce the headline of the report that states ‘the distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls as a Church of England school are Outstanding’.  

This is a fantastic outcome and reflects the hard work of students, staff, governors, families, the diocese and all those involved with the school community. The report reflects that our school is built on strong Christian values and encourages all girls to be ambitious, confident, spiritual, responsible and successful leaders of the future.  The report highlights include:  

“Students behave well as a direct result of the development and application of the school’s Christian values of service, compassion, justice and perseverance.”   

“Students recognise the importance of RE and the contribution it makes to their development through the school’s focus on forming character with love and learning.’’   

“Students, of all faiths and none, feel welcome and have a sense of value within the school community.”  “Parents confirm that the renewed focus on collective worship has a positive difference on the life of the school and upon their daughters’ outlook on life, with noticeable change for the future.”  

“The curriculum is rich and varied, providing opportunities for the study of a range of religions which allows students to make links between beliefs, values and practices and to compare these.” 

“Students are very friendly and welcoming, seeking to serve visitors ensuring a harmony between the motto ‘with love and learning’ and the experience of the school community.”

Headteacher, Beverley Stanislaus, commenting on this report, said "I am delighted with the outcome of this inspection.  It is a wonderful endorsement of all that we strive to achieve at St Martin’s, and is testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone in our school community."
