Thank you to everyone who supported our Rainbow Fun Day on Friday 8 May 2020. The school community came 'together' to celebrate the day by dressing in as many colours of the rainbow they could find and what fantastic results were achieved as our selection of photos displays. In addition, we have managed to raise the incredible sum of over £2000 (£1680 donations + Gift Aid) for CHAS to assist them in their amazing work at this difficult time.
Thank you to everyone for your kindness and generosity and for supporting the event so enthusiastically! It really has made a difference!
The Compass School is delighted to report that, following an inspection of the School and its pre-school/nursery provision by the Care Inspectorate in December, every aspect of its provision assessed has once more been graded as ‘Excellent’. Previous inspections have always resulted in The Compass receiving very positive reports, with the last two visits in 2013 and 2016, awarding the School ‘Excellent’ in all of the key areas which were inspected.

Headmaster, Mr Mark Becher said: “We were delighted to receive the Inspector’s assessment and in particular, to be awarded ‘Excellent’ for the third time in five years. We feel that the findings of the report are not only exclusive to the experiences of Form One children, but they also reflect the wider experience of all children at The Compass School who similarly benefit from the procedures, support, environment, staffing and management enjoyed by our youngest children. We now relish the challenge of maintaining and building-upon these high standards during the months ahead with renewed confidence and conviction, in constantly striving for the very best possible experiences for our children.”
On 31 October our young rugby players won all of their matches to become overall winners of the U9 tournament at Fettes! Along the way they beat Clifton Hall 6-1; Merchiston 4-1; and St Mary's 2-1; emerging as winners of Group 2.
In the Final, they played the winners of Group 1, Fettes and put in a dominant display to win 3-1, becoming the first ever Compass team to win a tournament such as this. What teamwork, skill and endeavour we witnessed from our boys this afternoon, with many compliments being received from other coaches and spectators.
The boys were delighted to receive their winners' medals and it was a very happy and jubilant bus ride back to Haddington! Congratulations to them all!
