We Achieve


At St Matthew's we are on a journey to Catholic Excellence.

Welcome to St Matthew’s RC High School.

As the Headteacher of St Matthew’s Roman Catholic High School , it is my great privilege to be leading a school where the holistic development of our pupils is our core purpose.

Our vision is to develop the ‘St Matthew’s Family’ and ensure that we provide the first class catholic education that our community deserves.

Our commitment to the pursuit of academic achievement for all and personal development is underpinned by our Catholic identity, brought to life through our Catholic values. 

Our curriculum is broad and balanced and constantly being refined so that all students can achieve well. Our aim is to continue to develop the expertise of our teachers to support all pupils to reach and exceed their academic potential. This is in conjunction with a bespoke Personal development programme and a wide ranging extra-curricular offer that truly reflects our local identity.

It is our intention that this, supported by our ethos and values, will allow each pupil to complete a five year journey with us and take their place in society where their gifts and talents will be of benefit to all. 

We insist on the highest standards of behaviour for learning and have clear policies in place to ensure these are maintained. It is my absolute belief that this consistency of approach enables our community to flourish and enables our pupils to live out our mission statement.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, if you have any questions, please do get in touch with us.
