A new vision for Matravers School


At a recent meeting of the full governing board we adopted a new Vision Statement that sets out our highly aspirational vision for the school. You will notice that student outcomes in terms of character development and academic achievement are at the heart of our vision. 

For the governing board our Vision Statement isn't just a bunch of fine sounding words posted on the school website. It is a statement of intent. We will work with the Headteacher, Dr. Riding as he leads the school forwards to ensure our vision becomes a reality. We will monitor progress against a set of demanding criteria in our quest to be 'world class' in every area of school life.  

Here it is:
Our Vision is for Matravers School to be a world-class centre for teaching and learning at the heart of the Westbury Community, the secondary school of choice for young people in the area aged 11-18. 
Achieving this involves ensuring that every Matravers student exceeds their expected potential in all aspects of their education. We will enable our students to gain the highest possible qualifications and equip them with skills and values that they need to achieve their ambitions on leaving school, in terms of vocational training, academic study and employment. We will provide the outstanding teaching, learning and leadership needed to fulfil this goal.
Our students will demonstrate outstanding attitudes towards learning supported through a wide-range of opportunities to represent their school with pride. 
Our extensive range of curriculum opportunity ensures that every student is well-equipped to progress successfully in life. 
Our outreach and support of others ensures that we are working at the cutting-edge of education as a system leader.
