We are proud of our achievements, our happy and caring atmosphere and the rich extended services available to all pupils and their families.

At Platt Bridge Community School we expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life.

We nurture positive attitudes to learning and behavior. Our staff provide a caring, safe and supportive learning environment for our pupils.
