Welcome to The Compass Academy
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website for The Compass Academy, formerly known as Ashwell Academy.
We are a Thrive school, which means we are all committed to helping our pupils become more emotionally resilient, so they are better equipped to deal with life’s ups and downs. We teach Character Education to prepare our pupils for life beyond the school gates and to give them the opportunity to flourish in modern society. We believe that there is a strong link between character and attainment, and success is not measured simply by quantifiable outcomes such as test results and attendance figures. Achievement is praised through good attitudes towards learning coupled with good effort.
We believe that if you look after the whole child, then everything else will fall into place. Developing our pupils to have skills alongside knowledge is the key to success. All our pupils getting the chance to achieve, be resilient, tolerate others and make great choices for life – in and outside school.
Our school website is a place where pupils, parents and prospective parents can access a wealth of information about the school as well as providing you with a sense of what life is like with us. We pride ourself on providing the highest standard of education to all students, regardless of their background.
Support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online includes:
