It is my pleasure to welcome you to St Martin’s, an outstanding Church of England School (SIAMS April 2018). St Martin’s Sixth Form is truly inclusive and culturally rich, welcoming young people (girls and boys) of all faiths and none. We are characterised by a warm community atmosphere underpinned by our motto Caritate et Disciplina - With Love and Learning.
We are proud of our emphasis on examination success as the key to the door for future opportunities, but we aspire to much more than this. We believe that education is about developing global citizens, so we value your child’s happiness and personal development at every stage.
The essence of St Martin’s Sixth Form is our Christian ethos underpinned by our values of service, compassion, justice and perseverance which are central to the life of our school. Students are at the heart of our vision; every student that comes through our door will be cherished, grow in faith and develop academically, socially and spiritually. We want our students to shine and grow together in faith and knowledge, developing their unique gifts and talents both in the classroom, in the wider life of the school and beyond.
The students at St Martin’s Sixth Form choose us knowing they will be empowered to fulfil their academic potential. More than this, they will develop the skills, competencies, personal qualities and characteristics that will help them on their journey to success, whatever the route they choose to take.
Our Sixth Form offers fantastic academic and extra-curricular opportunities that will help them realise their potential. We have a proven track record of guiding our Sixth Formers into the universities of their choice as well as into high profile apprenticeships.
We know that choosing the right Sixth Form is a huge decision and it is important to us that you, as parents/carers, are involved in this decision making process. We welcome you to visit our Sixth Form and to see for yourselves our academically focused and caring community where young people are ‘Ambitious for the Future’ and ‘Inspired to Learn’.
For over 300 years we have followed our school motto Caritate et Disciplina - With Love and Learning. In our Sixth Form, our motto is lived out through the challenge and rigour of our curriculum and the exceptional pastoral care that builds, within our students, resilience and self belief. We enable our students to become independent, confident and driven to succeed.
St Martin’s Sixth Form offers an exceptional provision for our girls, who are joined by students from other schools, including boys. We offer a small, inclusive environment where students grow, learn and prepare for undergraduate study and employment in today’s competitive world market.
