It continues to be a place of welcome, where everyone is expected to be a Learner who is Safe, Responsible and Respectful. St Matthew's students benefit from the wisdom that comes from our heritage, the beauty and scenery of our surroundings, and the commitment of our school and community to being relevant and engaged in our modern and technological world.

They meet each child where they are on their learning journey, and challenge and support them to become the best learner they can be. Led ably by our Leadership Team, St Matthew's is well-placed to provide your child with a high quality education that prepares him or her for the future.
