Our Student Leadership Team

  • Head Student - Pippa

    Hi! My name is Pippa and I am a Head Student. I’m currently studying English, Psychology and Religious Studies at A level. I find my courses very interesting and often enjoy wider reading around the subjects (especially Philosophy!) After Year 13, I hope to go to university and study Philosophy and English. I’ve been at Furze Platt since Year 7, so it’s safe to say I know the school quite well. In this time, I’ve learnt that school is a massive support network which is made up of teachers and students alike who are keen to support you through any challenges you may face. Although I’ve got a busy year ahead, I can’t wait to take on the challenges that Year 13 will bring!

  • Head Student - Kieran

    Hello there! My name is Kieran and I am one of the Senior Students this year at Furze Platt Senior School. I study A level English Literature, Psychology and Physics (to keep things interesting). My current plans are to go on to study Law at university, and with the extensive support that I have received from my peers and staff alike, this dream is well on its way to becoming reality. Furze Platt has helped to cultivate my passion for storytelling and writing, and has been overall fundamental in developing me into the person I am today. Going into my final year I am ready to work my hardest to get where I need to, and I encourage everyone to do the same, no matter your goals or passions. This year will not be without its challenges, but I enjoy these and I am confident that with the help of the wider team around me, we can make Furze Platt even better for those who will come after.

  • Deputy Head Student - Daisy

    Hello! I’m Daisy, one of the Deputy Head Students at Furze Platt. I am studying English Literature, History and Philosophy and Religion with an EPQ. After Sixth Form, I am hoping to go to university to study English Literature. Secondary school is a rollercoaster, but the support you receive here is amazing. I’m excited to become a part of that support system and I look forward to meeting all of you!

  • Deputy Head Student - Finnley

    Hi! My name is Finnley and I am one of the Deputy Senior Students here at Furze Platt. I am studying Biology, Chemistry and Drama A-level with aspirations to study Marine Biology at University. My mix of subjects has been perfect for my separate passions of science and theatre, and this is something Furze Platt has encouraged me to pursue since Year 7. Our Science department has fascinated me world's biological processes, and so I am a member of the Marine Biology Association where I learn about live developments and projects within the industry and discuss with the professionals who are doing this work. The performing arts department here has been a great outlet of creativity for me, having performed in last year's school musical, ‘Sister Act!’ and various other school performances. I take part in several theatre groups outside of school to further my love of the stage and have had amazing opportunities to perform to local and wider audiences. Having been at Furze Platt since Year 7, I have loved to help our community develop to each student's needs, so please feel free to talk to me – I will do my best to help!

  • Deputy Head Student - Tilly

    Hi, I’m Tilly – one of the Deputy Senior Students here at FPSS. I’m currently studying Maths, Chemistry and Physics, as well as just completing a year in Further Maths. My life goal is to pursue my passion for science, which is why I hope to study Physics at university. As an external student, joining Furze Platt Sixth Form was the best choice I could have made. The teachers are extremely supportive, and all students are accepting and kind. My love for learning is fulfilled here and I have my amazing teachers to thank for that. As well as having a love for science, I am passionate about helping others. I’m currently part of the ‘Raise and Give’ society, which has run events such as bake sales and fun runs in the past. Everyone at FPSS is here to support you, including me. Please feel free to come up to me at any time, I’ll always try my best to help.
