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, friendly school with a commitment to high standards, alongside a Christian care and nurture for all our children. We are often over subscribed, but 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 and 2, Sycamore Class for Years 2 and 3, Maple for Years 4 and 5 and Willow for Years 5 and 6. We usually have 20 children in each year group, with up to 30 children in our classes.

We are a successful school with a very 'GOOD' Ofsted report (May 2014), and we often achieve very high standards, with the majority of our children making very good progress. In 2014 our Tests results were the fourth best in Hampshire and 59th best in the country - an excellent achievement for our small school. We also strive for excellence with our building and resources, and were delighted to open our new two classroom extension in December 2014, further improving our facilities. Further developments are also ongoing.

This year, 2014-15, is the first year for our revised school structure: Cherry Class for our 20 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, 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.
