Secondary Expansion Plan
The Local Authority has launched a consultation with local residents with regard to the expansion of secondary schools in Maidenhead.
The consultation proposes an increase in places at Furze Platt Senior School by up to 60 a year, starting with Year 7 in 2017.
We are in full support of this proposal. The local authority has consulted with us and the Governing Body understand the need to provide more places locally.
We are confident that the proposed expansion can be managed effectively and that the ethos and high standards of the school will be maintained.
We firmly believe that the proposed expansion is an exciting development that will bring even more opportunities for students.

The consultation closes on Monday 3rd November 2014.
