What the students say

  • Head Girl

    I am Head Girl here at Furze Platt Senior School. I study English Literature, French, Geography and recently completed my Extended Project Qualification on the influences between poetry and art. I aim to read literature at university. Throughout my time here, one of the key learnings that this school has taught me is that, regardless of background, we all have the capability to aspire for and progress towards our ambitions. The school goes above and beyond to deliver an environment of excellence coupled with a warm and welcoming community in which everyone is stimulated to achieve. There is a variety of extracurricular activities available. I am currently a member of the Debate Club and have been part of the Chamber Choir and Hockey Team. Furze Platt provides numerous opportunities, preparing students for whichever avenue of life they may choose.

    Hello, I’m Head Boy for 2018/19. Since joining in 2012 I have seen the school develop from strength to strength, and the passion along side the above and beyond work the teachers put in have encouraged me to want to study a degree in Business Management, or Business Law. I enjoy every minute of my time at Furze Platt, and can’t wait for the year ahead!

  • Cookham House Captain

    Since I joined Furze Platt Senior School in Year 7, I have felt comfortable in the school environment with the help from the teachers as well as thoroughly enjoying my time here. Having chosen Biology, Psychology and Philosophy, Religion and Ethics as my A Levels, I am hoping to attend university to study Children’s Nursing with Mental Health Nursing as a dual field course, aspiring to work in the Children’s Mental Health industry. My time at Furze Platt has been a memorable experience which has helped me to grow into the person that I am, without all of the help from the teachers my dream of going to university would not have existed.

Outside of school, my hobbies are dancing and trampolining.
