Matravers School – Vision and Attributes

Our Vision

Our Vision is for Matravers School to be a world-class centre for teaching and learning at the heart of our region, the secondary school of choice for young people.

Achieving this involves ensuring that every Matravers student exceeds expectations in all aspects of their education. We will enable our students to gain the highest possible qualifications and equip them with the knowledge, skills and values they need to face life with confidence. We will stretch our students' ambitions for what they can accomplish on leaving school.

Our students will demonstrate outstanding attitudes towards learning supported through a wide-range of opportunities to represent themselves and their school with pride. Our exceptional care and support will promote the safety and well-being of our school community.

Our curriculum principles ensure that every student is well-equipped to progress successfully in life.

Our bespoke collaborations with other organisations will positively influence both our own learning community and the wider education system.  

Our Attributes

At Matravers we passionately believe that for a child to flourish in adulthood they must embrace and master the following 6 Key Attributes.

Resilience We equip our students with high quality core skills and the aptitudes to use them in order that they become independent enquirers, team workers, effective participants, self-managers, reflective learners and creative thinkers. Our inspiring teaching and learning empowers our students to meet any challenge with confidence and succeed in life.

Creativity We embed confidence and self-belief within our students by inspiring a passion for learning which extends to every member of the community. Students strive for excellence; teachers, support staff and the wider community continually enhance a flexible repertoire of skills in order to enable students to exceed expectations.

Ambition We enable our students to realise that anything is possible. There are no ceilings or limits to our aspirations.  We embrace an atmosphere of success across the whole school, which is publicly recognised and celebrated.

Happiness We recognise that every student is an individual. We care greatly for each pupil, providing them with the support and guidance they need to be fulfilled and happy.

Success We empower our students to raise their aspirations towards excellence. We ensure this happens by setting challenging targets and rigorously monitoring progress towards them. Through our home/school partnership we engage parents in the learning success of their children.

Selflessness  We ensure that our students grow and develop into rounded, grounded and reflective individuals with a strong sense of moral purpose. By doing so we prepare our students for life in modern Britain and encourage them to contribute positively to the world in which we live.

These attributes are reflected in our relentless approach to continuous improvement in ensuring that our students receive the most fulfilling and rewarding education possible
