Why Compass

Empower you school community today. Over 1,800 schools partner with Compass.

In 2009, our founders John de la Motte and Lucas Filer decided to embark on building a comprehensive, enterprise designed school platform. John and Lucas met at AMP (formerly AXA) over a team lunch, and bonded over their passion for technology in education. Having undertaken scholarship degrees at Swinburne University and Monash University respectively, and having worked in a combination of technology and multinational companies, they sought to develop an enterprise solution for schools.
