AT OUR SCHOOL... we believe with A PROUDER WAY learners can achieve anything. Through promoting the values expressed here our young people not only succeed academically but also socially, spiritually and culturally.
Martin High has a strong community ethos where each learner is part of a caring school community. What this means is that learners are able to access layers of support for both their academic and pastoral needs. We recognise that starting a new school can be both exciting and a little daunting but our transition programme ensures that learners feel confident in their school environment at the start of the academic year.
We pride ourselves in knowing every individual; which helps to ensure that everyone is successful and happy during their time at MHS. Central to our beliefs as a school, every learner has the right to good quality teaching; an aspirational environment, educational opportunities and a close knit school community here a sense of ‘real’ belonging leads to everyone achieving. Here at MHS we want your five years with us to be challenging, exciting and filled with achievement. We look forward to meeting you all and welcoming you into our school.
We are constantly looking to review and improve our parent-teacher communication and collaboration at the Martin High School. We truly believe that we can make the difference to your child’s progress by working closely together with you as a parent or carer.
At the Martin High School we try to keep parents, pupils and anyone interested in the school well informed. We hope you find everything you need.
We are an 11-16 Academy, offering an exciting and inspiring curriculum to all our learners.

The Library is the hub of the school – a vibrant, well used area. It has 16 computers and a colour printer. There is also a Careers area in the library to help pupils make important decisions in regards to their future careers.
Break and lunch-times are very popular for all pupils for finding that exciting read, information for homework or leisure activities. There are numerous opportunities for pupils to help out in the day to day running of the library, to participate in lots of competitions and attend ‘book-talking’ events and author visits. The aim is to make the library an enjoyable learning area and to encourage all pupils to love reading by having a book in their bag at all times. There are over 4,000 books to choose from and so we are able to supply pupils with a fantastic range of exciting books, to suit all interests and reading abilities. Pupils are encouraged to help choose library books to loan from Creative Learning Services or books to buy for the library. Each pupil can borrow 3 books for up to 3 weeks. For more information regarding books stocked in the library and reviews pupils are able to double-click on eclipse.net and login with their library username and password. If pupils don’t have this information please ask Mrs Wait (Library Manager).
The library is open all day from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm.
All year groups are welcome in the library both before and after school.
All years are invited.
A place needs to be booked before school or at break-time for lunch-time.
