St. Martin's School 3-16 Learning Community (formerly Rhyn Park School and Performing Arts College) is a mixed all-through school situated in St. Martin's, near Oswestry in the county of Shropshire, England. The school educates students from the ages of 3-16. St. Martins School is a Performing Arts College, supplying facilities and education in Creative Arts to students from around the county. The school was previously known as Rhyn Park School and Performing Arts College from 1958-2011.


St Martins School has a large range of facilities specialized for all subject areas. There is a large fully equipped theater with stage lighting and sound. There is 3 ICT suites and a suite of Apple Mac computers in the music room. A fully functioning sound recording and editing suite is also available.

The school has 3 high-quality science laboratories with specialist equipment for practical sessions and a food technology kitchen. There is also a resistant materials room complete with power tools. There are also generic classrooms for other subjects.


Through the school year of 2013-2014, the school underwent a massive refurbishment and re-build, which saw a whole new library and reception area (jointly named the "Hub") being built along the front of the school, replacing the former reception and administration offices. There was also a large area built for the primary school, with the Humanities subject area and old library being converted into classrooms for the younger pupils.

Secondary buildings[edit]

Work began in the summer of 2013,[1] which saw the completion of an extended car park near the sports hall, new toilets and complete refurbishment of the languages subject area. In February of the following year, the "Hub" was finished and opened to the students. This area incorporates the library, meeting room, admin offices and reception in an open-plan area. A new courtyard was completed over the following months and is situated to the rear of the library.

Primary buildings[edit]

A whole new set of buildings were built to accommodate the primary school and nursery. The humanities subject areas were also shut off and converted into primary classrooms, while the old library was converted into corridors and a larger classroom. Each classroom is equipped with a fully interactive touchscreen monitor, books and other learning resources.
