Vision and ethos

Our vision of academic excellence is what drives us. All students are provided with the best ways to achieve excellence in academic progress no matter their starting point. A high achieving Christian Girls’ School with a thriving mixed Sixth Form, ensuring an enriching educational experience where our students appreciate that learning is for life.

Our Ethos

Inspired by our motto “Caritate et Disciplina” (with Love and Learning) our mission is to create a safe, caring, happy and inclusive community underpinned by our Christian values. We want our students to shine and grow together in faith and knowledge, developing their unique gifts and talents both in the classroom across the school and beyond. 

We celebrate Christ together as a whole school in collective worship every week. 

We believe that reverence for God, respect for self, others and the environment is essential in today's society and we therefore dedicate our effort towards fostering these virtues.

During their time at St Martin’s, our students will be empowered to fulfil their learning potential because they are Hopeful, Enquiring, Respectful, Organised, Independent and Collaborative. We are HEROIC!


“Guide each one of us to be like St. Martin by always showing respect, encouraging one another and serving our community.”                                                                                              Inspired by St Martin’s School Prayer
