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.

With the ever expanding use of the internet in all areas of life it is becoming even more important to be safe when using it.
Social networking sites, online gaming, identity theft, hate sites and inaccurate information all pose risks for you and your child. Your digital footprint – information put online is often publicly searchable and can influence future careers. Universities and employers are increasing using the internet to research potential applicants. What would your child’s digital footprint say about them?
Within the school curriculum and during assemblies we highlight the positive and negative aspects of the internet and ways in which pupils need to protect themselves when online.
There are many different websites that can help you to understand the dangers of the internet and many which provide advice and guidance on how to help protect your child whilst they are on the internet. www.thinkuknow.co.uk is an excellent site that gives advice for pupils of all ages and parents. Other useful sites: www.childnet.com, www.digizen.org, www.cybermentors.org.uk.
