Headteachers - Guide your school with clarity and certainty.

Running a school takes coordination of people, processes, information, and of course, students. So why rely on old systems to run the show? Compass rolls a range of functions into a connected platform, giving you a clear view of what’s going on across your school.


Business Managers - for all the different hats you wear.

No day is the same for Business Managers, so you need a trusty sidekick that works as hard as you do. Compass gives you access to important performance data to keep the day-to-day running smoothly, and helps you find ways to work smarter. It enables complete visibility of everything from school meals to staff contracts.

Administrators - helping the masters of multitasking.

Administrators are truly the masters of multitasking – but that doesn't have to mean a life of stress and worry. You need a flexible system that can keep up. Manage your school data and run comprehensive reports at the click of a button. Spend less time on admin and more time engaging your school community.

Teachers - Focus on what you do best.

A great teacher is the not-so-secret ingredient to success for any students' education. Save time on admin by easily sharing resources, communicating with parents and students, and monitoring student progress with Compass. After all, time spent teaching is time best spent.

Parents - Help your parents feel more involved with their child's education.

Thriving students don't just learn in the classroom. The Compass app enables parents to engage closely with your school, from booking in parents evenings to seeing how their child is performing - never miss a thing.

The impact of exam stress is not limited to students alone; it affects the well-being of teachers as well. In fact, studies conducted in the UK indicate that during exam periods, 45% of teachers reported experiencing high levels of stress (according to a survey by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, ATL).With this in mind, we’ve designed our exams module to make exam time much simpler.
