Welcome to St Matthew's Primary School, we are a one form entry Church of England primary school situated in the village of Stretton, Warrington.  St. Matthew's is built on a Christian foundation and we put God at the centre of everything we do, equipping children with Christian values to prepare them for their lives.

At Stretton, every child is encouraged to discover and nurture his and her special gifts and talents through a stimulating curriculum that has global dimensions, going beyond the basic national curriculum requirements.


We have a dynamic team of teachers and support staff who act as exemplary role models, educating and nurturing each child, enabling them to achieve high standards of academic attainment whilst also enabling them to become capable, caring and confident human beings.


Alongside our hard working, dedicated and highly trained staff is a whole community of dedicated parents and an effective PTA who contribute immensely to our learning environment and the school’s wonderful and creative ethos.


Stretton St Matthew's has the advantage of being set in beautiful grounds next to St Matthew's Church and is surrounded by fields, farms and local community amenities. We have a traditional building equipped with excellent play, games and a large sports field.


Our curriculum is designed to provide the children of Stretton with the very best education rooted in excellence and Christian values.  We are proud of each and every one of our children and never cease to be amazed at their talents and the progress they make both in and out of school.


Thank you for visiting our website. Please navigate the pages to discover more about our wonderful school.
