A warm welcome to the new academic year – 2021 / 2022 

 Please click here for the Friends of St Martin's Welcome Letter for 2021/2022

 The Committee for the Friends of St Martin of Porres would like to welcome you and your children back to school. We hope everyone had a great break and are settled back into school life. We also welcome all new families who are joining the school for the first time. 

All parents of children at St Martin of Porres School are automatically members of the Friends of St Martin of Porres, a voluntary organisation whose aim it is to raise funds to aid the running of our school. We have chosen a Catholic education for our children and part of that commitment comes with a responsibility to do everything we can to ensure that the school is well maintained and financially sustainable so that our children can continue to benefit from the distinctive ethos that St Martin of Porres provides.
