Mission Statement

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

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

We have high expectations of all in our community.

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.

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 regardless of their background or starting point 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 Trust work together with shared and consistent values.

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