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. Our school is a unique place, where relationships between staff and students lead to a lifelong love of learning.

Ultimately our aim is to create pupils who are life-long language learners who are both empathetic and tolerant of other cultures and ways of life.
We emphasise communication and so aim for the target language to be used in lessons as much and as naturally as possible. We challenge and support our learners to become more confident, creative and curious about other languages and cultures.
Students build upon the language learning that has been undertaken at primary school. They will learn to talk about themselves, their family and home life, free time and their school routines. They learn how to ask questions of others and how to take part in social conversations. Students are encouraged to give their opinions and reasons for these.
Students learn to talk about how they use various media types. They learn about culture and the city of Paris, where they live, food and celebrations. They learn to use the past tense. They are encouraged to look at the accuracy of their work and how to extend the content of what they write for themselves.
Students learn to talk about the past present and future. They examine the world of work and jobs for linguists, life as a French teenager and holidays. They also begin to work more independently and benefit from working as part of a group.
Students study five themes. These are:
They are expected to consistently use translation techniques, speak spontaneously in the target language, analyse literary texts and are encouraged to be creative language learners.
We try to reinforce French as a living subject and we provide the opportunity for students to visit France during their time with us.
We offer a lunch time language (French and Spanish) workshops for all year groups where students can access many games, French books, and magazines with current topics and interests that may appeal to them, or they may practice what they have learned in class or seek help.
