The Governors are seeking a dynamic, inspirational and compassionate leader who is committed to securing the highest standards of learning, teaching and leadership at the school.

A £7m building programme sees us about to   embark on further enhancements to our school as we implement our expansion plan.

You will   motivate staff and students to give their very best, develop a lifelong love of learning and prepare for life beyond school. 

Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. 1263 boys and girls of all abilities thrive at our school. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school providing an outstanding education for all. We want our students to enjoy the time they spend with us by providing an education which is broad, stimulating and rewarding. We are also proud of the range of extra-curricular opportunities we provide for students outside the classroom.

The successful candidate will:

  • have a proven record of leadership and management at a senior level and can demonstrate a range of effective leadership styles to inspire and develop staff and students
  • have demonstrable success in raising standards and meeting challenging targets
  • have excellent interpersonal skills
  • be a versatile thinker who can look forwards and outwards to develop and champion innovative solutions
  • be supported by a committed and forward looking Governing Body, together with excellent senior leadership and business teams.
