Head of School

Sally Washington

I joined the Compass Community in April 2022 as Head of School at CCS Mountfields Park. The school has gone from strength to strength and I am immensely proud to be the Head of such a life-changing and transformative provision. I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people, especially those who have experienced difficulties and hardship.

Children need a different approach and adults that understand them and their individual needs. I am driven by the desire to improve outcomes and life chances for my students, as giving a child the support, skills, knowledge and opportunities to succeed in their life is, in my view, the best thing you can do for a child.


Part of a Wider Community

We are committed to

Developing young people who are responsible, caring and respectful of others, and who have a strong sense of fair-ness and what is ‘right’. We want them to treat others as they would like to be treated themselves and to understand and celebrate diversity and difference.

The school will help our children and young people to develop an inner discipline and will encourage pupils to not just ‘follow the crowd’ – they will make up their own minds and be ready to accept responsibility for what they do. They will grow through making choices and holding to the choices that they have made. They will want to be honest with themselves and with others.

Our Ethos

  • A passion to include everyone
  • A desire to treat everyone equally
  • An ability to respect difference and diversity
  • To celebrate all achievement
  • A commitment to healthy, open and respectful relationships
  • A deep sense of purpose that things can change and be transformed for the better
  • A sense of perseverance to keep going for as long as it take
  • An acceptance that failure is not the opposite of success, it is a part of success
