AN INTRODUCTION TO OUR

Parents

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.
