Challenging all students is at the heart of the Matravers ethos.  We ensure all students have the ambition to achieve their full potential.

Higher Students

All students that arrive to us with Key Stage 2 SAT scores of 30 and above, or 115 and above, are recognised as “Higher”. These students are targeted to make the most levels of progress and intervention is in place to help students achieve this.  These students are targeted Grade 7 and above at GCSE.

Oxbridge Preparation  

From Year 8, Students identified as Higher and on target to achieve in the majority of ‘gifted’ subjects will be offered enrichment activities to prepare for application to the most prestigious universities.

Particularly able and gifted students

Students who have been identified as particularly able, gifted or talented will be invited to enrichment activities/Prep after school. This could be Endurance dance company, murder mysteries in Science and gifted club in MFL as well as sporting activities.  Please find the Prep activities on the link below.
