Admission to The Compass School is by application to the Headteacher. Unfortunately, personal tours of the school are currently not available. We know how much the opportunity to meet our children and tour the school means and we will be offering tours as soon as the regulations allow.
Places are offered strictly by the order in which application forms have been received, with siblings of children at the School being given priority in this process. Children for whom we receive applications for entry into Form 2 to 8 are invited to spend a day with us during which they can gain an experience of the School, its activities and during which the School can assess their strengths and needs in advance of an offer being made. It is important for the School and for the parents to ensure the child is placed in an environment which is suited to their own set of abilities and needs and this day, along with a report from the child's existing school/nursery, helps us to determine this.
The earliest stage at which children may join The Compass is in the September of the year in which they become four, when they may begin in our Reception Class. The School’s intake runs from 1 January to 31 December (local authority schools - 1 March to 28/29 February). Places are normally offered in October of the previous year for children beginning in the following September.
A child may begin at The Compass School at any point from age 4-12, so long as there is a place available at the child’s particular stage and have enjoyed a successful familiarisation/assessment day with us. Similarly, children may join at any stage of the school year, although the start of a new term is preferable.
The Governors aim to ensure that tuition fees are kept to a minimum and yet ensure that they represent value for money. Fees currently range from £2305 to £3475 per term which provides not only for all textbooks, jotters and learning materials but also include tuition fees for swimming and judo which all the children enjoy each week of the school year. Lunch is taken by all pupils and costs around £240 per term.
