St Matthew’s has a strong reputation for its welcoming and supportive environment. On visiting the school, our overwhelming feedback from interview candidates and potential new staff is the sense of community and belonging, and the warm welcome extended to them by all pupils and staff.
St Matthew's is a diverse and energetic comprehensive school, with approximately 1200 pupils forming our school community. We have strong, long standing links with all our partner primary schools and sixth form colleges, which allows us to work well in supporting our pupils through key transitional points in their education.
As a Catholic school, we place Christ at the heart of all we do, and encourage of staff and pupils to be ambassadors of Christ. Through this, we are able to offer new staff the opportunity to join our St Matthew's family, where we all value and support each other, recognising good in all that others do.
