'The school is forward-looking and is continuously seeking ways to improve. Your vision for the school is clear and, together with your deputy headteacher and staff, you are working fastidiously to bring this vision to life' 

   'The Compass is a welcoming and caring school community. Inspectors were struck by how everything that staff do is focussed upon meeting the needs of pupils. Relationships within the school are impressive. Staff know each and every pupil extremely well.'
