We have students who transfer here from a wide geographical area including Oswestry, Ellesmere, Chirk, Wrexham and ofcourse closer to home from villages nearby.

The move to a new school particularly the move to secondary can be a daunting one. St Martins School works closely with local primary schools to ensure that the Transition runs as smoothly as possible. Our transition process really does start as early as possible.

Schools have the opportunity to visit us on an number of our Primary days, giving students the opportunity to familiarise themselves with our staff, students and departments.

Over the course of the remainder of this academic year Ms Lovecy will be visiting pupils at our local primary schools in Gobowen, Selattyn, Weston Rhyn  and further afield.
