2006 was another significant year at The Compton, with Allan Johnson, the Secretary of State for Education and Skills, opening Phase 2 of the building programme on 5th October 2006. This came shortly after the school’s third Ofsted report, where the school achieved an amazing 24 out of 24 Outstanding grades. The report noted, “the quality of teaching is extremely high. Lessons are meticulously planned and executed.”
2006 saw students at The Compton achieve the highest results ever for the school, with 75% of students achieving an A* to C grade. The exam results placed The Compton in the top 5% of schools nationally!
To top off 2006, Teresa Tunnadine was also elected as a National Leader in Education as recognition for her continued support and work in the wider education system.

“The achievement of pupils is exceptional because they are inspired by their teachers, and their personal, social and emotional skills are nurtured well. They are mature young people who are rightly proud of their school, who obviously enjoy coming to school, and who always behave impeccably”
“Inspirational Leadership of the Headteacher, supported by a committed and extremely talented team underpins this school’s exceptional success. Pupils of all backgrounds flourish in an atmosphere of high expectations and positive thinking. This is an outstanding school in which every pupil really does matter”
