What our parents say....


"I wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation to the staff involved in the recent Year 7 assessments.  I am sure this requires an enormous amount of preparation and marking and I just wanted to let staff know that I appreciated being informed of my son's progress.

"A fantastic opportunity to discuss my son's progress. Tutor was very positive and the school is exceeding my expectations.


"Very nice school, everyone's so nice and welcoming.

"Very positive feedback on our son's progress. Great to meet such enthusiastic teachers.

"Very useful evening. Always a pleasure to see how dedicated and enthusiastic the teachers are."

"I moved xxx from xxx to Matravers, and it was a huge move for her at XX. But the way the staff deal with, understand and support the children is priceless.
