Mr Platten graduated from Durham University with a degree in Primary Education. He has experience teaching within all Key Stages across schools in the North East of England.

Mr Platten aims to create an inquisitive learning environment where children are continuously challenged and encouraged to ask questions, while having many smiles along the way! He has a keen interest in early childhood development and places an importance on establishing positive relationships with all students he teaches to fully meet and understand their learning potential.
Outside of school, Mr Platten enjoys travelling, having explored Japan in 2019. He also enjoys running, cooking and music. He is excited to explore the culture of Japan and hopefully learn some Japanese during his time here!
