Breaking down barriers and building futures

Welcome from the Head

Corona Virus Update and School Closure Student Resources

As we end the sixth week of school lockdown, it is hard to believe that these measures have been necessary for such a long time. I would like to thank you again for your support of the steps St Matthias has taken in these difficult times. I have been so impressed with the quality of learning some pupils have returned and by some of your stories of how helpful your children have been at home.

On 10th May the government announced some guidance for schools around increasing the number of pupils attending school. St Matthias has been open to some pupils on a part-time basis and this will continue in June. Currently, the guidance from the Government states that primary schools will increase their offer to some year groups from June 1st at the earliest and secondaries will start to supplement work packs with some face to face time for Year 10 students at a later date that is yet to be confirmed.

Your child’s tutor will keep you up to date with Government advice and guidance. The most important thing is the safety of your children, our staff and everyone’s families.

We are a small secondary education learning community based near the Central Area of the city. We know that for many of our young people and their families when they first come to us that many of their educational and learning experiences have left them feeling disillusioned and negative about education. This feeling does not last long.

We strive to ensure that the personalised learning journey of all our young people provides academic success and the confidence and skills to break thorough personal barriers to develop a positive attitude to learning that enables each of our young people to achieve and grow.

Supported by a dedicated, skilful and committed staff team our young people successfully move on from St Matthias Academy.
