What the students say

  • Amy, Head Girl

    Hi I'm Amy and I'm Head Girl. I study Chemistry, Biology, Psychology and recently completed my EPQ on 'Asperger's - A Gift or a Curse?'. I am hoping to study Biomedical Science at University and want to work as a scientist in research and development in a pharmaceutical company. Along with Sam [Head Boy], we give public speeches, co-ordinate a team of House Captains and represent the school at public events.

  • Sam, Head Boy

    Hi, I'm Sam and I'm Head Boy at Furze Platt Senior School. My favourite lesson is Psychology, It’s really eye-opening. I’ve been here since Year 7, and I wouldn’t have wanted to be at any other school. I play football for the school team and I’m also captain for my local team Boyne Hill Boys U18’s.

  • Giulia

    I have hugely enjoyed my experience here at Furze Platt Senior School, particularly within the language department, which has been extremely helpful in supporting me in my multilingual skills. My proudest achievement is having arrived in England without being able to speak the language, while nevertheless having been able to thrive and develop as an individual within a calm, safe and academic environment. I am currently in my final year of Sixth Form, and I enjoy taking part in a multitude of cross-disciplinary activities. My passion is drama and theatre. I will soon be involved in a Stage One Youth production of Phantom of the Opera and will also audition for my last upper school musical.

  • John

    In my time here, Furze Platt Senior School has been really supportive in both academic and pastoral aspects of my life. I enjoy music and take part in several bands and choirs in and out of school. In particular I enjoy Maths and Computing, taking part in as many challenges as I can, and our Maths and Computing departments have recently been renovated with new buildings and classrooms. Furze Platt has been the springboard that has allowed me to aim high for my University choices.

  • Lucia

    Since I joined Furze Platt in Year 7 I have realised just how many opportunities, clubs and societies you can participate in. My interests lie in creative writing and therefore I have joined the up and coming student led newspaper. I am a fond reader and frequent gym goer and I enjoy attempting new and challenging exercises at the conveniently situated Furze Platt Leisure Centre.

  • Zach

    Hi I'm Zach and I am studying Biology, Psychology and Product Design. My favourite subject is Biology and I hope to go to university to study Biology to become a teacher. Another aspiration is to train in medicine to work for the NHS as a physician associate.

  • Louisa

    During my many years at Furze Platt, I have enjoyed contributing to the school in a variety of ways, like I do currently as House Captain for Windsor. I have been a Year Captain, Student Mentor and participant in annual sporting events and school concerts throughout my time at the school. This is a testament to the many extracurricular opportunities available to students where they can pursue their own interests. As a regionally competitive athlete, I enjoy balancing my time between sport and my studies. I have felt supported in both of these areas as students are motivated and encouraged to succeed, no matter where their interests lie. I have always liked studying a wide range of subjects which has been facilitated by the quality of teaching offered. I am currently taking Science and English A Levels with a hope to study Science at university. My academic achievements at the school thus far have been aided by the teachers who are willing to go out of their ways to assist students beyond normal lesson time. My time at the school has been a positive and memorable one. I will miss it when I leave but know that my years at Furze Platt have helped put me in a strong position to apply to my desired universities and prepared me for the challenges and opportunities I may encounter in the future.

  • Ben

    Hi I'm Ben and I'm House Captain for Windsor. I study Maths, Physics and Media, my favourite of the three being Physics. Some of my hobbies include rugby, American football and photography. After I receive my A-level results in the summer of 2018, I hope to join the RAF or a flight school.

  • Samantha

    I am studying Biology, Psychology and Geography for my A Levels and would like to study to become a midwife at university. I have completed my Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh awards and also attended NCS. Outside school, I play hockey for Maidenhead Hockey Club and also enjoy doing drama.

  • Amy

    For my A Levels I am studying Business, Psychology and Politics. After school I hope to do an apprenticeship in Event Management. Outside school I'm a keen horse rider and have my own horse, I'm also passionate about photography.

  • Robyn

    After my final year at Furze Platt Senior School, I would like to get a degree in product design; this is because since Year 7, I have had access to the amazing art and technology facilities and wonderful staff who have continued to push me to aim higher. Furze Platt has opened up so many opportunities which will allow me to go and explore the creative industry after I leave.
