Platanos College is an ‘outstanding’ school for pupils of all abilities. Located in stunning new buildings in a newly landscaped site in central Stockwell, our academy is flourishing.

Our message is straightforward: we believe in our motto, that attitude determines altitude in all human endeavour.

Pupils at our academy are hard-working, disciplined and focused on learning. They are being prepared for the world beyond school, to develop and achieve, to become productive members of society.
