St Paul's CE Academy

"Where love and learning meet."

Psalm 32:8  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

St. Matthew's Church

St. Paul’s is a Church of England school, which means that it is officially linked with its local Church of England parish, St. Matthew’s (you can see the church building from the front gate of the school as you look down Horntye Road).


The partnership between St. Matthew’s and St. Paul’s is hugely important for both church and school, and we have worked hard in the past few years to build and strengthen the partnership between us. Rev. Matthew Foy and other members of the church family help in a variety of different ways in the life of the school.


By taking a full part in the everyday life of the school, St Matthew's aims to actively support the leadership team, governors and staff in putting the ethos and values of the school into practice.
