The Compton School
The Compton School is a mixed 11-18 community comprehensive located in the Borough of Barnet. We are an extremely popular school and are massively oversubscribed – in excess of 1200 applicants for 210 places for September 2017, and are the school of choice for many parents in Finchley, Friern Barnet and surrounding area.
We are nationally recognised as one of the best schools in the country. Our results place us well within the top 5% of state schools year on year. This means that children who come to the Compton will make better progress than in virtually any other state secondary school nationally.
The school aim is simple – excellence for all, enabling every student to reach their full potential. A dedicated team of highly qualified and expert staff providing outstanding teaching. At the Compton students become creative and independent thinkers, encouraging them to develop a love of learning, bringing them great success.
Alongside our national reputation for academic excellence, we also pride ourselves on our outstanding pastoral care, providing a very positive environment in which students thrive. Children attending The Compton will be joining a strong and caring community with an emphasis on high achievement coupled with personalised support and encouragement at all times.
