Martin House Culture



Outdoor Education

Our Music

We are fortunate to be surrounded by very talented music teachers. During class music, all pupils learn to read music, play the recorder, listen to and appreciate classical music. The school orchestra allows interested pupils to excel in the instrument of their choice, such as violin, guitar and recorder.

A team of highly talented musicians offer individual lessons in guitar, drums, piano, violin and flute. Many of our students participate in the annual ABRSM exams.

Our Drama

The performing arts allow children to explore a world away from reality, to become a mysterious and wonderful character

At Martin House, the Keystage 2 pupils stage a production for the whole community in the second Term. Many hours of singing, dancing and acting culminate into a hilarious and colourful spectacle enjoyed by young and old.

In Term 3, the Keystage 2 learners focus on an Eisteddfod and /or a Speech Competition. Although daunting for some, it became a highlight on the calendar. They discovered hidden talents and listened with awe to their peers perform

The Keystage 1 learners also step onto the stage in the third term and their productions vary from Nativities to productions with a strong message about the environment and / or important life skills.

Outdoor Education

All teachers at Martin House are encouraged to adopt the Experiential Learning Approach. Children for their part are involved continually and in various ways in conservation which is taken very seriously. Recycling, litter prevention and collection issues are routinely focused on. All pupils from Grade 1 to Grade 7 are taught outdoor adventure skills, including fishing, camping, the outdoor kitchen, recognising fauna and flora, reading maps, orienteering, basic first aid, cycling proficiency and bike maintenance.

We offer skills, stamina development in activities such as canoeing, mountain biking and trail running. These are included in the camping expeditions that the senior grades undertake.

Adventure Learning occurs as part of the extramural programme, and camping falls into that category. The camping programme comprises of a gradual progression from Grade 1 to Grade 7.

Martin House strives for an excellent balance between academics, sport and cultural activities, which are critical components in “Learning for Life.“
