Welcome to School Compass

Giving you the confidence to navigate, and thrive in, the school system

I want you to have the insider wisdom you need to feel connected and in control of the direction of your child's education. I can't give you advice, but I can demystify the school system, help you to reflect and direct you to resources and research.

You want the best for your child. You know how important education is, but you can easily feel out of control. There is so much to do and so little support. It's not your fault.

There is not enough information about schools or the education system. It is opaque, confusing and full of jargon. The information which is available is limited, narrow and subjective.

You deserve better – education for your child is too important to leave to chance or decisions based on limited information.

School Compass helps you to understand the system and supports you in navigating the difficult choices you have to make. We provide the space and time for you to really think about schools so that you feel more confident and in control. 

We are the first teacher developed, independent organisation dedicated to empowering you with the knowledge and understanding you need to thrive in the complex school system. 

'Until I did this course, I had no idea how much I didn't know about schools! I used to feel like I was on a conveyor belt. I cared about my child's education, but I didn't know how to approach and work with schools effectively - now I feel more in control and confident with my decisions'
