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.

Welcome to RE at the Martin High School! RPE is one of 3 subjects in the Humanities department the others being Geography and History.
Our aim is to make RE one of the most interesting and enjoyable subjects you learn here at Martin High school. Our core focus is that we learn about world religions but also learn from them. Our lessons are prepared for students from all faiths and none and open discussion and debate are vital within our lessons.
At your primary school you will have been learning about some key aspects of Religious education topics already but when you come to us you will have 1-hour lesson per week.
In year 7 you will learn about the key aspects of the major world religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism.
In year 8 we move on to look at the more moral aspects of RE including a topic titled right and wrong. This topic encourages our students to question and think deeper about the world around us and have some excellent discussions.
In year 9 we finish key stage 3 by looking at some of the big questions for all of us such as topics including does God exist and does all life have value? These again allow students to question and think deeper about these concepts.
If you decide to choose RE as one of your GCSE’s then here we learn about people and events in much more depth- our topics currently include:
RE is a compulsory subject for students until the age of 16. Students who do not choose GCSE RE will still complete one lesson every two weeks.
RE is an excellent subject in affording students an opportunity to discuss some of the major questions in a welcoming and inclusive way. Throughout their time at The Martin High school students will learn about the beliefs of all major religions and the views of people who have no faith.
There will be extra-curricular activities as we go out to search for new and exciting learning opportunities. It is our ambition that each year group will have access to a field trip in RE.
RE is an exciting and fascinating subject and we very much look forward to having you in our lessons when you join in year 7.
