Teaching and Learning at the Compton is outstanding. Teachers plan meticulously and have the belief that every student can succeed. Our high expectations create an environment where students make exceptional progress.


We also have a consistent approach to Teaching and Learning that ensures high standards across all departments and subject areas.

We provide a broad and balanced Sixth Form curriculum and are fully staffed with specialist teachers who teach with passion and enthusiasm.

Students are encouraged to be independent and creative and independent study is used effectively to support learning beyond the classroom. Our whole school approach to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education ensures our students are ready to make a positive contribution to the wider community and adult life.

As part of developing independence, high attaining students will have the opportunity to take the Extended Project Qualification; a highly valued programme by universities and employers.

Our Teaching School status ensures that staff are at the forefront of educational research and development. A number of our teachers are specialist leaders in education within their own subject areas and this ensures that teaching at the school is of the highest quality.


“All my teachers at The Compton School helped me to develop further understanding in my subjects, encouraged me get involved on a deeper level and to contribute rather than just focus on getting good grades. Talking to my English teachers on a one to one basis made me think that attending Oxbridge would be an amazing opportunity and that allowed me to pursue that route.”
