Primary Phase

On behalf of the children and staff of St Matthew Academy, I am delighted to welcome you St Matthew Academy, primary phase.

I am extremely proud of our unique offer at SMP, we are dedicated to delivering a rich and personalised curriculum; allowing every child to reach their true potential. Pupils are offered a wide range of enrichment opportunities to enhance their development, and we take pride in our effective transition programme that ensures every pupil is ready for secondary school and are aware of our high expectations that are mirrored in St Matthew Academy secondary phase.

As a Catholic all-through, we are a community that learns, prays and has fun together. We endeavour to teach our pupils the Gospel values and this is enforced at every level of their educational career at St Matthew Academy. Our position as an all-through academy provides many advantages for our pupils; allowing them to benefit from secondary facilities and specialist subject leaders.

I hope that our website provides an insight to our outstanding offer as an all-through school and the unique offer our primary school offers pupils. I feel privileged to teach wonderful children and am committed to providing excellence in all that we do and offer our pupils.

If you would like to arrange a tour of our facilities and meet with the primary team, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Mrs Lorna Beckley, Head of Primary
