'An Outstanding School' – Ofsted June 2015   Read the report here

In the News!


The children form St Martin's Academy hit the news during the summer with Waitrose featuring their successful Grow & Sell initiative in an edition of 'The Weekend' magazine.

Having spent months nurturing fruit and vegetables from seed, a small team of children from St Martin's Academy set up shop outside the Chester branch of Waitrose and sold the produce to regular shoppers at the end of the summer term.  The team were fast and efficient and made sure that each shopper left with a full bag of goodies from beetroot to sugarsnap peas.  The children raised over £100 which will be used next year to purchase more seeds to hopefully repeat their success again.


Offering an impromptu home delivery service on the day caught the eye of the media team at Waitrose and the children were even featured in a summer edition of their weekend magazine. 

Well done to everyone involved and a huge thank you to the parents who supported and advised us this year - perhaps we may expand our venture next year, who knows!
