Secondary Phase

Welcome to St Matthew Academy, secondary phase.

At St Matthew Academy secondary, we pride ourselves on our passion for learning, dedication to students reaching their potential and our strong Catholic ethos we live by.

Students at St Matthew Academy are encouraged to pursue their talents and we are committed to developing the ‘whole’ child; with an emphasis on enriching their experiences beyond the classroom through an array of opportunities, boosting their career and university prospects. In addition, students are able to achieve excellent results as a result of our high standards of teaching and support – we are currently celebrating the best results in academy history and recognised as one of the top achieving schools in Lewisham!

Our position as an all-through provides many advantages for our students; consistent pastoral care between primary and secondary ensure any ‘dips’ in learning are addressed and appropriate support is available and the opportunity of leadership and mentor roles in our primary phase.

This section of the website has been developed to provide a flavour of our secondary offer at St Matthew Academy and our inclusive, inspiring learning environment. We welcome visitors to the school; please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to meet with myself or members of the leadership team and tour our outstanding facilities.
