About The Matthew Arnold School

A well-deserved Ofsted rating of Good (June 2018) is reflected in our outcomes at all levels, but particularly at GCSE, where we have shown consistent year-on-year improvement.

Teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do, and our motto is that every day, students achieve. We do this by focusing on the individual, by taking the time to find out how each child learns best, and by acting on what each child needs from us to help him or her to access a first-class education. We are also uncompromising in our expectations: we expect that students attend 100% of the time, and are actively engaged in every lesson from start to finish.

Our staff are exceptionally supportive and welcoming. We all work co-operatively to ensure that the school is a happy and vibrant place to be; our students are proud to be at The Matthew Arnold School and flourish in a safe atmosphere of mutual respect.

We offer full induction and a comprehensive training package. We look forward to welcoming you to the school!

Our Aims

Our mantra is that ‘Every Day Students Achieve’, now understood by staff and students as EDSA. We want our children to achieve his or her very best both inside and outside the classroom, and we have a highly-qualified, dynamic team which is absolutely committed to working with our children all the way through school and to bringing out the very best in them. We would love for you to join us in this journey.
