Welcome to St. Martin's School

St. Martin’s Church of England Primary School is in the lovely setting of East End village, near East Woodhay and Woolton Hill, just south on Newbury.

We are a small Church school with a strong Christian ethos and have active links with the church of St. Martin’s nearby.

We are a primary school so children join us at age 4 and stay until age 11. We are a popular school, but we occasionally have spaces in the older classes for children who are looking to change schools. Waiting lists are held for some year groups.

We have 5 classes, all named after trees in the school grounds: Cherry Class for Reception children, Silver Birch Class for children in Year 1, Sycamore Class for Years 2 and 3, Maple for Years 3 and 4 and Willow for Years 5 and 6.This year, 2013-14, is a transition year for our school structure. From September 2014 onwards, our revised school structure will normally be: Cherry Class for Reception children, Silver Birch for Year 1 and younger Year 2, Sycamore for older Year 2 and Year 3, Maple class for Year 4 and younger Year 5, and Willow class for older Year 5 and Year 6. Due to current uneven year groups at the upper end of the school, for the school year 2014/15 only the temporary class arrangement is likley to be Maple class for just Year 4 and Willow class for Years 5 and 6

Perhaps because we draw children and families from a wide area, St. Martin’s has become a real community in its own right, and children and parents soon become supportive friends who work together for the whole school. 

If you would like to come and visit the school, please ring Mrs. Hennessey in the school office for an informal appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
