We continually strive to improve the quality of education and opportunities for our students. Many developments have been completed in recent years and challenges abound for future development. Compass has earned Healthy Schools and Healthy Schools Plus awards and has the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Level 1 award.
We recognise the uniqueness of each and every learner and ensure they have access to an equal opportunity to advance through a high quality, flexible alternative provision route, which leads to achievement and accreditation that enables them to successfully take their next steps in life.
Compass has a full team of experienced staff. The school benefits from a strong Management Committee with a range of skills to support staff, parents and students.
The majority of our students are in KS4 with most being taught on Compass's site. A small number of KS3 pupils are on the Compass roll. In addition, Compass provides lessons at several locations in the area and also provides the Home Tuition provision for those unable to attend school. Compass uses Third Party Providers for some specialist provision.
Students at Compass make good progress and achieve excellent outcomes at KS4. For our 2018 exam cohort, 60% achieved 5 or more GCSE's grades 9-1 (A*-G) or equivalent including Maths and English/Literacy.
Compass has been graded ‘GOOD’ in the last three Ofsted inspections
