Platanos College was this week congratulated by the Minister for Schools, David Laws MP (Department for Education), for its excellent performance in the new 2012 Similar Schools Performance Tables published this year. We are one of the top performing schools in England on this measure.
These tables compare schools against those with near identical intakes and Platanos College stood out in two ways. Firstly, we were ranked number one in the table. Secondly, over 10% moreof our pupils achieved five good GCSEs including English and Maths than is typical of a school of our intake. An excellent achievement for Platanos College.
Platanos College was also recently named by the Sutton Trust as among the best in the country after an analysis of the 500 top-performing schools and is a member of the SSAT Leading Edge network of high-performing schools.
