Platanos College was today named by the Sutton Trust as among the best in the country after an analysis of the 500 top-performing schools.
Recent research by the Sutton Trust revealed that many top-performing schools were socially exclusive as a result of their locality, but Platanos College bucked this trend. The analysis showed that Platanos College was in the top 5% of schools with a significant proportion of pupils above the national and local average attaining good GCSE results regardless of their social background.
