Compass Education Trust

Mission and Values

Our Mission

Seeking success for all.


Our Values

  • We are a family of schools, working together to create one community where every individual counts.
  • We provide excellence in learning and encourage our students to be the best version of themselves. 
  • We relentlessly innovate and develop our practices, continually adapting to change in order to provide our students with great opportunities. 
  • We ensure that collaboration between our schools and with our local community is strong, recognising the individual character of each of our schools whilst aligning our approach.
  • We understand that sharing good practice will bring about improvement.
  • We strive to treat everyone with kindness, respect and dignity, always ensuring that we are open and transparent and communicate clearly and effectively. 


Our Vision

  • For each school within our Trust, to be the school of choice within our local communities.
  • To maximise the potential for all our students. 
  • To be the employer of choice, offering fulfilling and rewarding careers within a supportive and kind environment. 


Future Strategy

Our trust has doubled in size over the twelve months to September 2023, meaning that we are currently in a period of consolidation. Whilst we endeavour to build on our existing successes, we strive to improve outcomes through the benefit of shared resources.

To date, we are a family of four secondary schools, serving more than 6000 students and employing nearly 900 staff, with a turnover of over £44m. 

We are open to exploring local growth opportunities, including strengthening links between the secondary and primary phase, which is a key part of our medium-term strategy.
