What is 4Matrix?
4Matrix is a powerful, remarkably low-cost, SQL database-driven, networked application that works as easily as other Microsoft applications, like Word. It can be used across a school network by all teachers and managed by a data manager. 4Matrix will import and automatically process rich data directly from all major MIS in minutes, or you can easily copy and paste from spreadsheets. You can import any number of data series into 4Matrix, including exam results, Levels, estimated grades or target grades.
4Matrix provides power tools which can be used to analyse, compare, forecast and report on the performance of subjects, the quality of learning and the progress made by different groups of pupils, and the consistency and impact of teaching. 4Matrix works at key stages 3 and 4.
Teachers can use 4Matrix to investigate the effectiveness of teaching and learning - without needing to be statisticians. 4Matrix turns low level data into the language of school improvement.
4Matrix has already helped many schools gain an Outstanding judgment for leadership.
Why does our school need it?
If you wish to do much more with the data in your Management Information System (MIS) then this is the most powerful system available to manage the performance of pupil across their subjects.
If you would like your teachers to be knowledge-driven rather than data-driven, then this is the professional system that you will need. 4Matrix supports a unique, knowledge-driven approach to self-evaluation and school improvement.
Why does 4Matrix do?
4Matrix will easily import data from all major MIS or from spreadsheets. 4Matrix goes much further than just producing graphs, or just showing you the information you have put into it.
It will automatically analyse and produce a range of school performance reports in minutes.
It will identify key intervention groups, and forecast next year's headline results to within 2-5%.
It will automatically calculate Levels of Progress and Value Added for all pupils.
It will provide evidence of the impact of interventions, including Pupil Premium.
Why is 4Matrix essential for managing pupil progress?
We recently released our powerful new Flight Path tool and our acclaimed Interactive VA target tool as free upgrades. The Flight Path tool provides the most sophisticated approach yet devised to monitoring pupil progress from year 7 -11 in relation to targets grades, levels of progress and Value Added. The VA Target tool checks that whatever method you use to set targets is effective in leading to positive Value Added for all pupils. Tracking progress is a waste of time if you are tracking towards the wrong targets. Two thirds of pupils with high Levels at KS2 are underachieving because their targets are wrong (click here for source). The Flight Path and VA Target tools ensure that this cannot happen in your school.
How can 4Matrix help schools support effective teaching?
4Matrix will allow teachers to investigate learning effectiveness across their classes through an action-research approach. Teachers can produce essential reports on the impact of their teaching to support Performance Management and Ofsted inspection preparation. 4Matrix will provide quantitative evidence to support Gap Analysis and the impact of intervention on the performance of groups of pupils.
How can 4Matrix support Outstanding school leaders?
Many schools are already using 4Matrix to take greater control over their inspection.
We have created a high-impact training day, based on this system, that has already helped school leaders achieve an Outstanding Leadership grading from Ofsted.

How can our school get started with 4Matrix?
Getting started is simple. Senior school staff can order 4Matrix from the link below and have it up and running the same day. 4Matrix is easily installed on a server in around 15 minutes - or on a stand-alone PC if you wish to immediately see the power of 4Matrix using our demonstration school database. Then use it with your own school data and then wonder how you ever managed without it.
