New Compass School building for Summer 2023

A brand new school for our community!

Work is set to start on our new building with an anticipated completion date of May 2023. This means the 2021-22 academic year will be the last full year on our current site! With state-of-the-art learning and sports facilities, the new Compass School just next door, will facilitate a fantastic education for our young people.

The school is an integral part of the Grosvenor Britain & Ireland’s masterplan for the area and it’s being built first.

From Science labs to a rooftop multi-use games arena and exceptional visual and performing arts facilities, the new Compass School is an inspiring learning environment, with everything pupils need to thrive.

Demolition contractors, Keltbray have cleared the site and Grosvenor UK & Ireland have officially handed over to the DfE. ISG, who secured the DfE contract to build the school kick off the building programme in January 2022..

“This is an exciting time for our community as we see rapid progress toward the new school being built.” Marcus Huntley, Principal.

Portraits of local people

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland commissioned world renowned portrait artist Barry Falls, to produce a series of illustrated portraits of local people to feature on the building site hoarding graphics, printed materials and online. Mr Huntley was delighted to be invited to participate alongside former Brooklyn Barton, a former pupil who, during her 5 years at Compass, was the epitome of our values.
