Curriculum

Led by Deputy Principal, Mrs Sandie Sherwen, the curriculum is delivered by our experienced and dedicated staff.

Academic excellence is central to the philosophy of St Matthew’s. We provide an environment where each girl is encouraged to strive for individual excellence in all that she does and to develop her talents to the full.  St Matthew’s girls perform well when compared to National averages and a broad Year 7 and 8 curriculum provides a foundation for future studies.  An education programme based on skills and problem solving ensures that girls gain the flexibility and confidence needed to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

The learning experiences of the girls are enhanced by field trips, workshops, visiting speakers, National and International competitions and the use of technology.  Girls, gifted in specific curriculum areas, are able to access the curriculum at the relevant level.
