Welcome

Everyone in the Compass School community will confidently reach the destination to which they aspire.

Welcome

Compass School Southwark is mixed 11-16 school shaped by a strong set of values: Aspiration, Integrity, Exploration and Resilience. Our vision is that every child in the Compass School community will confidently reach the destination to which they aspire, and this drives all aspects of school life, from our high expectations for students and staff through to exciting opportunities to explore the world around us. We focus on academic excellence and nurture our students to become more independent learners and young leaders. Our broad and balanced curriculum and extensive enrichment programme aims to develop resilient young people with the confidence and integrity to express themselves effectively, and who are ambitious about their futures and the opportunities they are provided with. We guide students to be able to relate to the world around them, with a sense of responsibility towards our local community and wider society. Every Compass journey is enhanced by our important local and City of London relationships, and inspired by our flourishing alumni network of university students, young professionals and mentors.
