Martin House derives its name from one of Norfolk’s most famous British philanthropists. Sarah Martin was a dress maker and devoted much of her time to visiting Great Yarmouth’s prison with the aim of inspiring inmates to improve their lives. She offered practical help alongside spiritual advice and taught them how to read. The prisoners were able to develop a sense of purpose and pride by making things to sell and used their earnings to buy clothes.

Our house motto is

Like Sarah Martin, we want everyone in our house to develop into students who strive to reach their full potential and take pride in their academic studies and achievements both in and out of school. We value respect and kindness and show care and consideration to others. 

Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural:

In Martin House, students are encouraged to have a voice and all opinions and views are listened to and respected. Students reap the benefits of a supportive form tutor who will offer help, encouragement and guidance throughout their time at Flegg High Ormiston Academy. Students are also encouraged to act as mentors for younger learners and should strive to be selected for roles of additional responsibilities such as year 10 assistants, prefects, literacy mentors or members of the student leadership team.
