We are proud to be a Catholic school and we place at the centre of all we do the Person of Christ and the tradition and teachings of the Church.

St. Matthew’s benefits from a modern school building with excellent equipment and facilities to support pupil learning and development during the school day and beyond. The school environment, curriculum and extra-curricular activities supports, fosters and inspires pupils to make every effort to achieve success at the highest level and provides opportunities for them to make a valuable contribution to the local, national and global community.
