“St. Matthew’s is such a caring, happy, family school.”


Welcome to St. Matthew’s. We are a small, close-knit Church of England infant school which has been at the heart of the Cobham and Downside community for well over a century.


Ranked consistently in the top 5% of Surrey schools for Key Stage 1 results, St. Matthew’s was praised by Ofsted (October 2013) for “inspirational teaching”, “leadership of an exceptionally high standard”, and a “varied and exciting curriculum”. The experienced and committed staff makes a “highly effective team”.  All this, in a Christian and nurturing environment, provides an ideal transition from nursery education.


We are focussed not only on achieving excellent results but inspiring your child to learn and explore new things, be creative, grow in confidence, be who they are – and have fun!
