It was a fantastic experience, the one that I did a few weeks ago, as it enriched me greatly; I was so honoured to be chosen by my peers to spend the £250 Jack Petchey Award. I wanted to focus on celebrating the achievements of women as this is something that is necessary; choosing new books for the library that do this, made me fully realise how important is the role of Ms Quigley inside the school. Everyone in school is different; for this reason, choosing the right books that every student will enjoy is a terribly hard task.

Keeping our sense of community alive, even while apart during the summer term, is one of the things that we are most proud of. From competitions to community quizzes, being at home didn’t mean that we were alone. Even so, we were so glad to be back together in person in the autumn term, it really has reminded us all how grateful we are to be part of the Compass Community!
Our Just Giving fund launched at the end of March with a target of raising £10,000 to support our pupils to overcome barriers to learning during the school shutdown. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community who enabled us to achieve this target in just 2 weeks and the total has since reached £35K! Read all about it in the Southwark News. A massive shout out to all donors, particularly the Shad Thames Residents’ Association, John Virgo, Grosvenor, the Worshipful Company of Pewterers and the Curriers. You still can donate to the Compass Hardship fund.
