Welcome to St Matthias

We are rewarding our students who have been working hard and engaging with their learning.  Each week we will be awarding learners of the week in subject areas for students from each year group.  Your teachers will be nominating the students who are working hard and engaging with their learning.  Names will appear on our website.  We will also display the names of students on our screens around school.
