The whole school appreciates the diversity that students from overseas bring to St Martha’s School. Our international students join in with every aspect of school life, follow a full curriculum and enjoy all our social events. We offer a UK Curriculum, working towards GCSE & A-level Examinations.

Small class sizes (usually under 10) allow girls plenty of access to teachers and the chance to develop strong relationships with them. Each student also has a personal tutor who closely follows her progress.

Beyond the Books

It’s not all about work at St Martha’s! Girls also enjoy cultural trips, take part in sporting activities and learn new skills in our varied extra-curricular programme. Outside school hours, our successful Homestay programme gives students the chance to experience home life with British families.
