Welcome to
St Matthew's RC High School

You may have read in the media about a number of schools across the country who received malicious hoax threats today. Police are working alongside schools and local authorities to identify those responsible.

Please be assured that we have been informed by GMP that there is not believed to be any direct threat to our school, and that school should continue with business as usual.

Thank you for your ongoing support.



Welcome to our school website. We hope that you find the website interesting and informative and that it gives you a flavour of who we are as a Catholic learning community. 

St Matthew’s is founded and sustained by the truth of the Gospel and the teaching of the Church. It is our faith which gives shape and meaning to all we do.

We believe that we are partners with families in each child’s journey of faith and foster this by creating a unique spiritual development programme to nurture their spirituality. We are proud to be a Catholic school, and greatly value the fruitful partnerships with our primary schools, sixth form colleges and parishes.

Our school mission statement can be summarised as ‘pray, care and achieve’ and we encourage and enable all our pupils to make real that mission statement in their own life and that of the school community.

We are a community made up of dedicated staff and motivated learners. Pupils are relentlessly challenged to achieve the best that they can. At St Matthew’s we value each pupil as unique and special, made in God’s image and likeness. We do all we can to make sure they are happy, feel safe, work enthusiastically, make excellent academic progress and contribute to improving the school and the wider community.
