About Us

We are a four-form entry, mixed, 11-16 free school that opened in September 2013 as Compass School Southwark. Founded by a varied and experienced group of Trustees, the school will grow to offer an exceptional education to 600 young people in the heart of Bermondsey. We are ideally located just a short walk from Bermondsey Tube Station.

Our new building which is near completion, will facilitate a fantastic education for our young people with state-of-the-art learning and sports facilities.

The school joined The Charter School’s Educational Trust in July 2023 becoming The Charter School Bermondsey. This exciting new partnership will bring fantastic opportunities, including access to first rate professional development opportunities for employees.

An opportunity to grow and lead

Successful candidates will have relevant experience, the drive and enthusiasm to go “above and beyond” in all areas of school life to ensure that students and the school exceed expectations. All staff are expected to contribute fully in school life, and for the right candidates there may be opportunities for additional whole-school leadership responsibilities.

If you share our values, and are excited by the prospect of making a real contribution to a small and growing school, we want to hear from you.
