St. Matthew’s has improved rapidly over the past five years. As a Church school, the school receives both Ofsted and SIAMS church school inspections. St Matthew’s is graded as good by Ofsted (May 2017) and outstanding by SIAMS (January 2016). Both recent reports can be found on this page along with links to other useful inspection information.
