What the students say

  • Head Girl

    My name's Anya and I'm Head Girl here at Furze Platt Senior School. I've studied at Furze Platt since I joined in Year 7. Now that I'm in the Sixth Form, I'm studying English Literature, Psychology and Drama, three subjects I am incredibly passionate about! After completing my A-levels, I am looking forward to exploring my love for the performing arts at University and the world of work. I love immersing myself in extra-curricular activities, ranging from sport to choirs and mentoring younger students. Furze Platt has been incredibly supportive, providing opportunities and helping me balance these activities with both my studies and my personal life. It is a school community I am proud to be part of, and I'm very excited to face the new opportunities Year 13 brings!

  • Head Boy

    I am Head Boy here at Furze Platt Senior School and I am currently studying History, Philosophy and Ethics, and Mathematics. I am also completing an EPQ researching Politics. After my journey at Furze Platt, I hope to go on further and study Philosophy at university level. Ever since I joined Furze Platt I have been welcomed into an inclusive community which strives for excellence in all aspects. Its supportive environment and encouragement of all pupils to excel has helped me become the person I am today. The diligence of both the students and staff creates a determined but friendly school, which I am proud to be part of. I am looking forward to the challenges Year 13 brings and seeing everyone at Furze Platt prosper together.

  • Deputy Head Girl

    Hello, I am Deputy Head Girl for 2020/21. I am currently studying Biology, Geography and Art, as well as having almost completed an Extended Project Qualification. I joined Furze Platt as an external student in Year 12 and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here since then. The Furze Platt community welcomed me with open arms, making the transition smooth. During this little time, I have been extremely impressed by the standard of teaching and passion amongst teachers within the school. I hope to go on and study Paramedic Science at University and eventually work as a specialist Paramedic. I am very excited for the year ahead and the opportunities it will bring.
