The Compton School is a supportive and happy environment to study in. Our exceptional and comprehensive system of pastoral care at Year 12 and 13, ensures that all our students are individually supported to achieve their very best. Our high expectations regarding student behaviour ensures an excellent atmosphere in which to learn.
In the Sixth Form we recognise students are young adults and respond to this by providing greater freedom. However it is also important to maintain high levels of support and have monitoring procedures in place to ensure that with this greater freedom standards and progress do not slip. For this reason, all Sixth Form students will be allocated a tutor whose role it is to monitor their progress, develop their confidence and provide help and guidance in the completion of future career plans including applications to Higher Education. Each year group also has a Pastoral Leader who contributes to their personal and academic development.
"The hard work and care of the pastoral team has made a huge difference to me and my children. They are committed and willing to go the extra mile. I have found them incredibly supportive and am hugely grateful." PARENT
