Roll over each one for more detail

Deansfield Primary School

Seeking new and creative ways of engaging children in learning experiences that motivate and entice them to deepen their understanding and develop a lifelong love of learning.

Halstow Primary School

A creative, dynamic and innovative school that works in close partnership with its community to provide the very best educational experiences for our children.



The Compass Partnership of Schools cares passionately about achieving the best for your child. We commit to this by creating a fully inclusive environment that actively promotes social justice and equality, empowering everyone within our communities. We create challenging contexts for learning that develop your child’s thirst for knowledge. We believe that by encouraging your child to become actively involved in their own learning, they are empowered to question, challenge, imagine and create. This enables them to grow into a responsible citizen who wants to change the world for the better, equipped with a well-developed sense of self-efficacy. Your child’s school develops ambitious, challenging, and creative curricula that enables them to flourish socially, spiritually, culturally, emotionally, and academically. Whilst high academic attainment is important for your child’s life chances, we also believe in the importance of providing a rich experience of the arts and sport. The Compass Partnership of Schools is committed to the very highest professional standards, within a climate that values individuality, and that promotes the unique ethos of each school, sitting firmly at the heart of its community. Through collaboration, we seek to build on each school’s strengths so that we may benefit our broader Compass community.

Recruitment building


Details about working for us

The Compass Partnership of Schools seek to recruit the very best staff. Great learning and teaching are at the heart of everything we do. Our success is determined by the way we innovate and improve them both. We are committed to personalised professional learning opportunities that support teachers and support staff in progressing their careers, by improving the quality of the educational experience for all of our children. Observed practice of each other and with each other is central to our drive to build a professional learning community, which harnesses the best quality research and builds collective capital for school improvement. We are also dedicated to the well-being and development of all our staff, and demonstrate this through our commitment to the London Living Wage, national teachers’ pay and conditions, and the clear career progression opportunities provided for all skilled, committed, and passionate members of the team.
