Children can begin at The Compass as early as their pre-school year and this element of the School’s provision has been highly commended on successive occasions by HM Inspectors and the Care Commission. Enjoying this level of excellence at such a significant point in their early schooling means that, at The Compass, firm foundations are laid for the rapid development of literacy and numeracy from the earliest stage.
We offer a comprehensive and wide-ranging curriculum, with French and swimming being taught from age four. There is a strong emphasis on developing sound skills in English language and mathematics with which to access other subjects. Science, history, geography, Spanish and Latin are taught as specialist subjects from Primary Five upwards.
As well as enjoying the challenges of academic subjects, children also enjoy many opportunities in music, drama and art. Mr Mark Becher, the Headmaster, believes that, “Children should have frequent opportunities to develop their confidence and self-esteem, for instance, performing in front of an audience. The Compass allows children to build their self-confidence and develop a strong belief in themselves in their day to day activities.”
In providing children with further challenges for personal development, we offer a wide-ranging outdoor education programme. During a normal school year, children take part in outward bound courses in Perthshire and Peebleshire, hill-walking challenges in the Pentlands and in the Scottish Highlands and expeditions to York and to London. Primary 7 pupils also enjoy an annual expedition to Paris. Extra-curricular activities too are an important feature of school life with numerous opportunities for children to enjoy after-school clubs and sport.
Yester Farm Dairies is run by Simon McCreery and his wife, Jackie. It operates alongside the family farm so as soon as milking is finished the milk can be piped straight from the milking parlour to our modern pasteurisation plant on-site.
This means that our products are pasteurised, packed, refrigerated and ready for delivery as quickly as possible - avoiding long tanker journeys and ensuring the freshest possible product for customers. This keeps food miles low and offers full traceability.
We operate according to high environmental health standards and are an approved food business establishment licensed to process and sell milk. We are also accredited members of the SALSA Scheme (Safe and Local Supplier Approval).
At Yester we are passionate about top quality milk produced to the very best animal welfare standards. Our husbandry practices for the cattle are Quality Assured by Scottish Food Quality Certification.
