elcome to St. Matthew’s CE Primary school.

Our school is situated in South Street in Ponders End, within the parish of St. Matthew’s. We also have an annex on Dyson's Road in Edmonton for another four classes. We are home to 320 happy children, who are at the forefront of all the things we do in the school.

The main school is on a small but attractive and well-maintained site. Its original school hall dates back to 1838 but the rest of the building has been considerably modernised and expanded since then. The school has close links with the Parish Church of Saint Matthew, which lies adjacent to the school. The school is well regarded in the community as a close knit family school where children are happy and make good progress. The school has a strong Christian character and very strong links with the church.

We also offer a wide range of clubs for children in all year groups. These include a range of sports clubs, as well as a choir, arts and crafts, homework club and many more.

We also have a breakfast club and an after school club. For more information about these, and for information on applying for a place at our school, please contact the school office.
