St Matthew’s is a vibrant, single form entry primary school with two hundred pupils. It is situated in the centre of Stockport and is served by St Matthew’s Church. St Matthew’s was the first school to join the Chester Diocese Academy Trust family in January 2014 as a sponsored academy.
At St Matthew’s parents and extended family play an important role in a child's learning. They believe in securing strong partnerships which are formed in the early days and then developed and strengthened as the children go on their learning journey. St Matthew’s strives to ensure that all children achieve and develop into confident young individuals who have high levels of well-being. Staff are enthusiastic and aim to encourage self-belief in their pupils. They deliver an interesting and creative curriculum within which learning is based, as far as possible, in real experience.
