    What the students say

    • George - Head Boy

      Furze Platt Senior School offers a wide range of subjects that students of all abilities have the opportunity to excel in, evident in the wide range of degree subjects and universities chosen by Furze Platt students each year. I cannot imagine any school in the area allowing me to simultaneously develop myself as a person and build my academic track record to the standard that I have here.

    • Sophie - Head Girl

      Since joining the school in Year 7, I've been provided with an environment which has allowed me to grow and develop into an independent and confident individual.

    • Justine

      Everybody makes you feel welcome at Furze Platt and there's always people to talk to when you need help.

    • Will

      I joined Furze Platt in Year 12 to study for my A-Levels and the thing I enjoy the most about my new school is the strong sense of community. Students and teachers are happy to help at all times. Furze Platt has opened up many opportunities for me, whether it be inside or outside of school.

    • Patrick

      My main passion in and out of school is Drama, and, thanks to the wonderful drama facilities and inspirational teaching, this school has helped me to realise and explore this subject. I am so glad I chose Furze Platt as my school, as it has given me a lot both academically and socially and left me with many great memories. I highly recommend this school and Sixth Form!

    • Jess

      I have been at Furze Platt Senior School since Year 7 and I have enjoyed every day at school. There are so many students around who are there to help and guide you in whatever you may need help in so you will never feel alone, and you will make the best friends who you will stay in contact with when you leave!
