The Compass School - Nursery

The Compass School remains East Lothian’s only independent primary school providing quality education for boys and girls from pre-school to Primary Seven.

Children attending the School enjoy its friendly and caring environment in which they can feel secure and happy and in which they are encouraged to succeed, developing confidence, skills and ability. Its small class sizes allow each child to enjoy a very high level of individual attention.

The School has consistently been awarded ‘Excellent’in every aspect of its provision by the Care Inspectorate, reflecting the quality and high standards of care and nurturing its children enjoy, particularly in the nursery/pre- school year. We offer full day care (7.45am to 6pm) for all children and a daily morning bus service from North Berwick.

The Compass enjoys an excellent environment for learning with modern and well-resourced facilities and a very attractive outdoor area for learning and play.

Children in the pre-school year enjoy a rich curricular experience, building firm foundations in literacy, numeracy and communication skills. They also have weekly lessons with specialist staff in French, music, swimming and judo.

Mr Mark Becher, the Headmaster, believes that, “The first days of a child’s time at school are some of the most special in their lives and at The Compass we aim to ensure that children settle quickly and thrive each day they come to school. We offer a busy and exciting day for each of our children and it is great to see them coming into school so eagerly each morning, ready to learn and play.”
