The Matthew Arnold School is a happy environment which prioritises wellbeing for all, challenges the individual to thrive, offers true equity of opportunity and where success is an expectation.
Our core purpose is to ensure that all members of our school community are fully prepared for the next stages in their lives and can expect to find all doors open to them. They will be aware of their responsibilities as global citizens and excited about their contributions to a brighter future.
