I’m extremely excited to welcome our Year 7 cohort to Martin High School.

You have an exciting journey ahead of you with a wide range of opportunities available to help you grow and develop not just in the safe space of the classroom, but also as part of our wider school community. If you approach every task with a positive, proud attitude and determination, you will really enjoy being part of our Year 7 community.
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 and strengthen relationships 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 and safe in their school environment at the start of the academic year, and have the ability to continue to excel within our broad and balanced curriculum as the year goes on. As Head of Year, I am always proud of the welcome that our Year 7 pupils get from other learners and the ease with which they settle in to school and community life.
As you read our website I hope you will gain an understanding of the rich learner experience Martin High provides and the high expectations we have of all our learners.

Mr Black
