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.

In November 2017, the Lionheart Academies Trust launched Cedars Martin Sixth Form.
Cedars Martin combines the excellence in provision and teaching from both The Cedars Academy and Martin High School, forming a state of the art Sixth Form College in Birstall, Leicestershire. We pride ourselves in enriching the lives of our Post-16 students both academically and holistically, whilst ensuring they are fully equipped with life-long skills and knowledge to meet the challenges of Higher Education and the ever-evolving workplace.
Our vision for ‘Academic Excellence and Holistic Development’ means we are ambitious and aspirational for our students and staff, and fiercely committed to equality of opportunity. We expect students to strive for academic success, aiming for top performing universities and to go above and beyond to realise their full potential.
Students in the sixth form can expect to be taught by expert teachers in small groups where they will be supported and challenged to make rapid progress and meet exacting high standards. Students have access to excellent resources and facilities across two sites including the Palmer Tomkinson Centre which is our Post 16 Hub.
The Cedars Martin Sixth Form is committed to the holistic development of every student. Both The Cedars Academy and Martin High School have a small school ethos, where personalised learning and pastoral care is at the heart of the school. This continues to be the ethos within our combined Sixth Form.
