2012 saw the Olympic Games come to London and The Compton School was involved in a number of ways. Not only had Sebastian Coe and Boris Johnson visited the school to launch the ‘Ticket Share initiative’, but students and staff were invited to the Olympic Park to run activities for visitors in the Olympic Garden.

The school was also recognised by the Rt Hon David Laws, Minister of State for Schools, for its outstanding results in 2012. In a letter to the school, he highlighted that the Compton was in the top 100 schools nationally for progress.
