The governance of the school is outstanding. Governors support and challenge the school very effectively.  (Ofsted, 2014)


Our Members/Trustees are responsible for the strategic direction of the Platanos Trust and the schools and for ensuring exceptionally high standards of education provision and accountability.


The Local Parent Advisory Board

This comprises two trustees and two elected parents of the school. It is a consultative body with an advisory function. The local body is involved in consultative matters such as community links, discipline and behaviour, citizenship, social, moral, spiritual and cultural education, the ethos and reputation of the college. This local body reports to the Trust Board.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Parental Advisory Board meetings are scheduled to restart in May 2022.
