Compass Community School South

Compass Community School South is a secondary independent special school for boys aged 11-16 years old. Set at the foot of the South Downs in East Sussex, with the coast just minutes away and easy road and public transport access to Brighton, Eastbourne and Lewes, we are in a prime location to make the most of all that this beautiful, historic and vibrant area has to offer.

Our highly trained and experienced education team work closely with parents, carers, multi-agency professionals, key workers and programme psychologists to holistically support children and young people with a range of challenging presentations, particularly Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and attachment difficulties. We have a relentless drive to achieve the very best possible outcomes for every one of our students.

No matter what stage of learning our students are working at when they arrive, we provide a targeted, broad and balanced curriculum that maintains high academic aspirations without losing sight of the child themselves. We support them to engage fully in education, find a love for learning, develop their self-esteem and resilience, and provide them with the skills, knowledge and opportunities they need to take the next step in their life.

100% of our year 11 leavers go on to Further Education and the majority sit GCSEs, where we have a 100% pass rate.
