Vanessa Whay, Founding Principal

I have worked with Compass for over 9 years and they bring a professional approach to recruitment. Their personal and professional manner ensures that there is a right match between the teachers and the school. Heather is an amazing member of the team. They offer an excellent service in a very challenging market. Having recently opened a new school and needing to build a new team, I knew I would turn to Compass



Stuart Smith, Headteacher

We are very fortunate amongst British International schools in that we rarely have to use teaching agencies to fulfil our staffing requirements – however when we do, we go first to Compass! The service is always personalised with a knowledge of our school and specific needs. We do not get plagued by emails advocating all and sundry “excellent” teachers – instead, they are ready to support us when we need them. They are meticulous in supporting our Safer Recruitment policy and practices by facilitating reference checks and appropriate police checks. All in all, a first-class, non-invasive service.



Nicola Singleton, Whole School Principal

Compass have provided excellent support for our annual recruitment efforts for 3 years. We regard their match of ‘school and teacher’ as carefully considered, and our students have benefited from a number of excellent appointments – teachers who are highly competent in the classroom and passionate about teaching. Heather Thompson is incredibly responsive to our needs and refers high-calibre candidates for interview. I very much appreciate that Heather is as committed as I am to finding the right teachers for our school!
