About Us at St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School
St. Matthew’s Catholic Primary School is a co-educational Catholic Academy which caters to pupils in the west of Northumberland Local Authority. Our school has worked alongside the children and parish of Our Lady and St Cuthbert’s Catholic Church since 1876. We aim to provide a nurturing and stimulating learning environment in hopes to enable all children to achieve their very best throughout their time with us.
On 1st April 2020, St. Matthew’s became part of the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust. It is envisaged that the trust will grow as large as 48 schools by July 2022. This transition was part of a diocese wide Academy Policy. We are very excited to be working within the new trust and having had lots of experience as part of a smaller trust, we feel well placed to add lots of value to Bishop Wilkinson CET moving forwards.
Our staff are fully committed to the aims of our school in providing the very best educational opportunities for all pupils. We are passionate about creating a fun, engaging and productive environment which will contribute towards securing our children’s academic, social and emotional development.
As a school we are fully welcoming of all families (regardless of faith background) throughout Prudhoe and our wider community in our catchment area, feel free to give us a call on 01661 83584 to discuss any questions you may have regarding enrollment in our school or our catchment area.
