Our School Aims

At Matthew Arnold School students  make great progress in their learning and attain ambitious outcomes through our excellent curriculum. Through our diverse and inclusive community we support students to become kind and responsible young adults, confident and proud of who they are and ready when they leave us to make a positive contribution to their world.

Our Values

  • Ambition
  • Kindness
  • Inclusion
  • Collaboration

Achieving our aim

In order to achieve our aim of success for everyone, we will use evidence from data (e.g. examination results, progress data on individual students) and feedback from the school community including staff, parents, students and governors to identify the priorities for improvement each year. The annual School Improvement Plan based on the agreed priorities will provide the framework for continual improvement in striving to achieve our aims.
