Welcome to St Matthew's Primary School

St. Matthew’s is a Church of England Primary School situated very close to the town centre of Bolton.  We currently have 461 children, aged 3 to 11 on roll.  St Matthew’s is blessed with large grounds that offer a safe and stimulating environment for learning and play.  We embrace’s a child-centred approach to learning, celebrating each individual’s achievements and encouraging all children to realise their full potential.

An extremely welcoming, positive ethos and happy atmosphere permeate’s our school and we enjoy a close relationship with the immediate and wider community along with local schools and nurseries.  Our children are brimming with enthusiasm and are hungry to learn, they are well-motivated, very positive, caring and responsive, reflecting our strong Christian values and ethos.  The school has very high expectations and aspirations for each and every one of our children and we aim to be a school to which staff and children are proud to belong, which parents are pleased to support and where everyone feels valued and fulfilled.  Our school community is made up of a wide variety of people from many different backgrounds.  We work closely with the local churches and clergy and we are proactive in the teaching of Christian values in order to nurture all aspects of our pupils’ development; academic, spiritual, social and moral.

If you are thinking of visiting us, I would be delighted to show you around.  We extend to you a warm welcome to visit our school and experience for yourself the special nurturing atmosphere and education that the children at St. Matthew’s enjoy.  The children and staff look forward to meeting you and sharing our school with you.
