Academic Expectations

Compass School Southwark is a fully inclusive school, with a core academic curriculum followed by all students. Everyone in the Compass Community has a positive work ethic and expectations of progress are higher than the national expectation.

Compass School students in Year 7 and Year 8 are currently performing above national expected progress targets, and we are proud that so many of our students are meeting the aspirational targets that we have set for them.

Literacy & numeracy

Literacy and numeracy, along with the ability to relate to people and places, form the core of the Compass Curriculum. In Years 7 to 9, all students will study English and Maths for one hour each day, including one hour a week of silent reading.

Inclusion

Compass School Southwark is a fully inclusive school in every sense of the meaning, accessible to students of all backgrounds, faiths and abilities, and regardless of learning or special educational need. High quality teaching, differentiation in lessons and mixed year group classes where appropriate ensures that students can make better than average progress in all subjects, regardless of starting point.

Challenge

At Compass School, we ensure that all students can reach their potential. To achieve this we stretch all students with a challenging curriculum and a growth mindset approach which encourages students to embrace challenge and want to learn. All students are encouraged to explore beyond the classroom, and our most able students (Trailblazers) have their own programme of support.
