Contact Details

Mrs Mary King's Church of England Primary School is situated in the village of Martin about thirty minute drive from Lincoln. We have around 100 children on roll who are taught in four classes, these are mixed age except for the reception group. We welcome children from a wide area including nearby villages of Timberland, Metheringham and Woodhall Spa. The school is part of the Carrdyke Federation along with Walcott Primary School.


We aim to provide our children a broad curriculum that prepares our pupils well for secondary school and beyond. We want our children to be confident inquisitive learners who demonstrate our school's Christian values. Our key curriculum intent is that of ensuring our pupil's are excellent communicators and global citizens with an awareness of the wider world. Sport is a great strength of the school, children experience a wide range of sporting experiences from a young age and many go on to compete beyond school as a result.  Whilst we want our children to know a lot, it is how they apply this knowledge and treat each other that will be the true measure of success. 


Our church school mission statement 'working together with God's help we can all achieve great things' refers to the story of the miracle of the loaves and fishes. We invite our children aim to do their best and not place limits on what they believe they can achieve in life. 


As a church school we value our excellent links with the parish and make full use of the village church that is a stones throw from the school. We hold regular services in church with parents and the community invited. 


The school was founded in 1753 by Mary King a member of a local landowning family, the King's of Ashby de Launde making it one of the oldest primary schools in Lincolnshire. The King family were local landed gentry and notable in their involvement in the restoration of the monarchy following the English civil war. There is a trust that still manages the capital from the original bequest and own a substantial amount of land adjacent to the school site.


The oldest part of the current school dates back to 1830 and has been subsequently extended many times providing an excellent teaching environment. The site includes a purpose built kitchen to supply hot meals to the site and partner school Walcott. 


A warm welcome awaits you at Mrs Mary King's.
