Our school is making rapid progress since its inspection in November 2022. A recent review by the Local Authority commented on the ‘sea change’ noted in students’ behaviour and the culture and ethos of the school. Our 2023 outcomes were the best set of Key Stage 4 results achieved by Year 11 students since 2016. Our Year 7 intake continues to be oversubscribed, with a waiting list.
Our school is a strong, caring community underpinned by our three core values of achieve, enrich and prepare. Our school’s culture is focused on the principles of high expectations and aspirations for all members of our community; actions and conversations, however difficult, are always underpinned by kindness; that we communicate and share success; that we value each other’s views and opinions; decisions are evidence based and student centred.
Our Governing body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. The successful applicant will be offered a position subject to full pre-employment checks including an enhanced DBS clearance, satisfactory medical checks and 2 satisfactory references.
About the Trust
We are a small Multi Academy Trust based in the South-East of Essex and currently manage four local secondary schools. Each school within our Trust is a place where we believe in the power of education to transform lives.
Our philosophy is centred around the belief that schools can achieve better educational outcomes for students by working together as a collective entity. The Compass Trust is founded on the principles of collaboration, innovation, and inclusivity, with the aim of providing a supportive and nurturing environment that enables schools to flourish and students to succeed.
