Compass School


The Compass holds an Open Day every September/October and March.  Our next Open Day is on Thursday 7 March 2019 from 9-10.30am and 1.30-3.00pm. There is no need to register in advance, please just join us on the day.

Applications are still being accepted for entry at most stages for Session 2018/19. Please contact us on 01620 822642 or for more information and a copy of our prospectus.

Admission to The Compass School is by application to the Headteacher. We encourage interested parents to visit during a normal school day when they can experience the unique atmosphere which makes The Compass School so special.

Interested parents will enjoy a tour of the School by the Headteacher who will explain further the positive ethos and values of the School and how children develop and progress during their time with us. It is also a good opportunity for parents to share with us their own hopes and aspirations for their child/children and to discuss with the Headteacher how the School might meet their individual needs.

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.

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 £2195 to £3310 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.

The School offers financially assisted places for children whose parents are seeking places in Primary 1-7. For further information see Financial Assistance or contact us directly.
