“The Compton has provided an outstanding education for many years and continues to do so. Pupil outcomes and welfare are at the centre of everything the school does. Pupils and staff are rightly proud of their excellent achievements.”

I am immensely proud to be Executive Headteacher at The Compton School. The Compton School is recognised as one of the best comprehensive schools in the country; children that come to The Compton School make better progress than in almost any other state secondary school. I am also very proud of the diverse, multi-cultural and inclusive nature of our school in which we strive for every member of our community to feel respected and valued. 

The Compton School in one of a small number of schools nationally to have receive five consecutive 'outstanding' Ofsted judgements; the school has been delivering an outstanding education to its students for over 30 years.

Our aim is simple: to deliver the best possible education for all students to maximise their achievements so that they are academically, socially, and emotionally ready to take their place in society as successful adults. We have a dedicated and passionate team of well-qualified and highly skilled staff who provide outstanding teaching. This enables students to become creative and independent thinkers and develop a love of learning which remains with them for life and brings them great success. 

Alongside our national reputation for academic excellence, we also pride ourselves on our outstanding pastoral care, providing a very positive environment in which students thrive. 

If your child comes to The Compton, they will be joining a strong and caring community with an emphasis on high achievement always coupled with personalised support and encouragement. 

At The Compton, there is extensive monitoring of students’ progress and regular contact with parents. We emphasise the importance of respectful and positive behaviour which ensures the school is a happy and safe place to learn. 

In 2018, The Compton School founded The Middlesex Learning Trust of which I am the CEO. The formation of the Trust enables a wide range of staff to work together to combine their shared professional knowledge, expertise, and experience to ensure the best possible educational experience and outcomes for all students.  

I am also privileged to have two Heads of School, Louise Ismail, and Andrew Hammond, working alongside me at The Compton. Together, they bring with them over 40 years of experience in working successfully with young people. In our Vision and Values section of the website you can find out more about their commitment to the Compton School and our unfailing belief in the potential of every child.
