National Teaching School and Teacher Training

The Compton School was designated a National Teaching School in the first tranche of applicants, July 2011.  The school was one of 100 schools selected by the National College for School Leadership from approximately 1200 schools who had shown an expression of interest.  The core purpose of a National Teaching school is to develop effective partnerships with other schools to foster self-sustaining school network of improvement and development, with a focus on successful outcomes for children.
