What the students say

  • Head Girl

    I am the Head Girl at Furze Platt Senior School. I am currently studying Psychology and English Literature, having recently completed my Drama A Level over the course of a year. Throughout my time here, I have been nurtured and encouraged through every avenue I have decided to venture down in order to further my academic studies and build on my own character. Furze Platt conjures an environment of acceptance, compassion and enjoyment through engaging teaching methods, school trips, extra-curricular clubs and activities, opportunities for leadership within the student body and so much more. The school’s emphasis on individual achievement ensures that each student feels validated and allows them to strive towards their own personal goals. From my own experience, I can certifiably say that Furze Platt’s supportive sense of community has allowed me to be healthily challenged whilst totally revelling in the journey.

  • Head Boy

    I am the Head Boy here at Furze Platt. I study Maths, Further Maths and Computer Science and would like to read Maths at university. The excellent teaching and tutoring provided by the school has helped me to identify my passions and succeed wherever I wish. Students of all backgrounds and abilities are encouraged to thrive here, which is why I hold the school in such high regard. A particular focus of the school is the development of character in addition to academic ability. From Year 7 to now, I have become a much more mature, capable and thoroughly independent individual, well equipped for the next steps in life.

The school has helped me grow and become the confident, enthusiastic and sociable person I am today.
