Accessing 4Matrix from Outside School

There are several ways in which this can be achieved, and we have put together a document to help users decide on which option is best for their school. 

You can download the document from this link:

In-light of the current situation, we are extending the free-use period of 4Matrix Infinity for all schools until September 2020.

Import Fix

There is a fix available for an error which occurs when attempting to import data via a spreadsheet into an existing series in which results or custom field data has already been imported.

 Subject names not complete in Progress 8, EBacc and Borderline


Update introduced short names for subjects. This was added to 4Matrix as a solution to an acute technical issue with the display in some screens, which will be exacerbated as we move towards the release of the web version of 4Matrix at the end of 2018.

Users can continue to use unique subject names to clearly identify each subject.

They can also set up short names of up to 8 characters which will appear on display screens: for example, “Eng Lang”, “Eng Lit” etc. Unlike the main subject name, these short names need not be unique when used in different series, so for example, 9-1 Maths and A*-G Maths can both use the short name "Maths".

We have had feedback from a small number of users indicating that they would like the option to use the long name in some circumstances, for example when exporting data. We have a development meeting in the run up to Christmas and will discuss this issue then. The outcome of the discussion will be posted on our news feed. We do listen very carefully to what our users tell us and aim to make 4Matrix as user-friendly as it can possibly be.

In the meantime, we hope that the short name option in Edit Subjects will allow you to give your subjects useable short names which will make the display in Progress 8 and elsewhere clear and useful.
