Good Morning. Welcome
Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. Boys and girls of all abilities thrive at our school and our aim is to help them develop the skills and qualities which will allow them to excel in the future. We want them to enjoy the time they spend with us and this is accomplished by providing an education which is broad, stimulating and rewarding.
There is an enormous range of opportunities for the young people in our care, both inside and outside of the classroom. As well as their studies our students tackle a wealth of extra-curricular activities and an exciting programme of trips and visits. We have outstanding academic, sporting and the arts facilities.
Examination results are excellent and the majority of students progress into our popular sixth form.
Girls and boys of all abilities and aptitudes do well at Furze Platt and we pride ourselves on the harmonious and friendly atmosphere which exists on campus.
