Our mission

We are proud of our inspirational environment which is at the heart of our community.

Platanos College exists and works for all pupils and learners. We have an unshakeable belief that we can make a difference. We are changing lives.

We have high expectations of all in our community.

We firmly believe that one's attitude is the key ingredient in achieving success regardless of background or ability. Attitude Determines Altitude.

We prepare pupils and learners to take advantage of learning opportunities throughout their lives and to rise to the demands of academic rigour, high standards of scholarship, further and higher education, as well as opportunities in creative careers, the service industry and business, accountancy and finance.

We believe that every learner can succeed and we challenge and support them to reach their full potential. We offer all learners a rounded education to meet the challenges of an ever changing society.

We raise the aspiration of learners to ensure that they achieve beyond their expectations and play a valuable role in the world.

We celebrate success and encourage pupils and learners to take part in and enjoy learning and life by stretching the abilities of all. All areas of our Federation work together with shared and consistent values.

We are proud of the cultural diversity in our school and encourage tolerance and respect for each individual. We link our school to other cultures and communities throughout the world.
