What the school says...
At the Compass School Southwark, we aim to be one of the best schools in the country, renowned for delivering outstanding academic results and developing world-class aspirations in every pupil, regardless of background or start-point. We believe a child's education must be approached from all sides, engaging with and enhancing all aspects of their lives and in doing so help them to determine their own course, having developed the skills to read the world around them.
Our key characteristics are those of: self belief; high aspirations; academic excellence; a broad and challenging curriculum. These are under-pinned by high quality literacy and numeracy; with a focus on relating learning to the real world and outstanding student support and outstanding curricular and extra-curricular opportunities
We aim to ensure the fulfilment of individual potential, nurturing skills, talents and unique gifts in the pursuit of excellence and instil an ethos of integrity, respect, hard work and high aspirations by delivering a challenging curriculum supported by outstanding teaching and learning opportunities.
We want to ensure every student that leaves us is actively engaged in education, employment or training and to develop a love of learning that transcends traditional school boundaries, years and walls, enabling students to become successful in careers that may not as yet exist. ...Read more

Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
