Saint Martin’s School, founded in 1941, provides education for girls from Nursery to Sixth Form, 3 years to 18. The School is situated in a stunning twenty acre site in the centre of Solihull and located in the grounds of the historic Malvern Hall. The Hall, once owned by the Greswold family, has a unique link with the landscape painter John Constable who visited early in the 19th century. All pupils are able to take advantage of the extensive facilities on site from the swimming pool and all-weather pitch to the new Performing Arts Centre, SMArt, with its theatre and dance studio.

Saint Martin’s is a non-denominational Christian school where respect for others is paramount regardless of their faith or background. The enthusiasm of girls to look beyond themselves, to understand the global dimension of the world in which they live and to seek ways of helping others are important elements of our School community.

The School aims to provide an all-round education of the highest quality in a safe, happy, supportive and stimulating environment. All staff give generously of their time and energy to enhance the educational experience and to give support to the girls both in and out of the classroom.

It is recognised by parents that due to the size of the School community all their daughters are valued and known as individuals. Parents appreciate that Saint Martin’s offers a traditional education with a wide range of opportunities. There is a very active Parents’ Association and Alumnae.

The academic results of the girls speak for themselves. In 2015 the Upper Sixth students received a record number of top grades and all gained places in their first choice University. Together with an outstanding 100% pass rate the School has featured in the ‘The Telegraph’s’ Top Ten Small Independent Schools List for the last 3 years. At GCSE, girls gain on average 10 GCSEs and the results reflect their hard work. The School was last inspected in January 2013 by ISI and a copy of the Report is also on the website.
