The Charter School Bermondsey is a mixed 11-16 school in the heart of Bermondsey. Our new state-of-the-art building boasts incredible learning and recreational spaces with fantastic views of London.

We aim that all our pupils develop a secure body of knowledge, skills, values, and cultural experiences that enable them to build better futures for themselves and others.  We believe that all pupils have the potential to flourish, through great teaching and providing the right environment and opportunities.

Our core values of aspiration, integrity, exploration, and resilience underpin our mission and support our pupils to become happy, independent and confident young people. These drive all aspects of school life, from our high expectations for students and staff through to exciting opportunities to explore the world around us.

DfE School Performance Tables show a headline Progress 8 score of +0.29 compared to the National average of -0.03. This means our students, on average, made more than a quarter of a grade better progress across their curriculum than those with similar starting points Nationally.

Formerly Compass School Southwark (2013-23), we joined The Charter Schools Educational Trust (TCSET) in July 2023.
