    Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1400 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence.


    We offer a friendly and harmonious campus, and we support the physical and mental wellbeing of all our staff. Discounted membership is available for the use of a fully equipped and well-maintained gym on-site. All staff have access to an employee advice programme which offers information, resources and a counselling service. We reward long service and encourage community spirit and staff involvement through various social events including orienteering, murder mystery quizzes, sports after school and a Furze Platt fantasy football league. Tea and coffee are free, and freshly brewed coffee is available in the main staff room at break times with edible treats to help you through the week!


    We are looking for an empathetic, confident person with the relevant skills to provide a comprehensive medical and welfare service to our students. In addition to the provision of first aid and other medical support to individual students (and staff when required) you will work with colleagues on the implementation of individual health care plans for students with medical conditions. You would either deliver first aid training for staff or organise it, co-ordinate student immunisation programmes, liaise with the pastoral team in relation to pastoral issues and contribute to medical and student wellbeing policy. We would also like the successful applicant to support and on some occasions train staff members who are working with students with severe and complex medical conditions as well as support the school trip process in relation to medical requirements. You would have a dedicated office and medical room to work in and the use of a medical tracker system.

    If you are a team player who enjoys working with minimum supervision and who might already have a medical background in some form or another then we would love to hear from you. The ability to remain confident and calm in an emergency is essential as well as having excellent practical skills and the ability to use IT systems. Good verbal and written communication skills and administrative skills are also critical for this role.

Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1500 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence. We are well placed for access, with good transport links to and from London and surrounding counties. Our school is very well resourced and equipped with many new facilities benefiting students and staff. These include a state-of-the-art theatre, gym, fitness suite and new three-storey teaching block incorporating science laboratories and classrooms. We are proud of the fact that the local community is also able to use these facilities.

We want our students to enjoy the time they spend with us by providing an education which is broad, stimulating and rewarding. We also believe passionately in music, drama, the arts and sport and have a Dance studio, two Drama studios, a recording studio and practice rooms and an all-weather astro-turf to support these. We are proud of the range of extra-curricular opportunities we provide for students outside of the classroom including Duke of Edinburgh, ski and theatre trips, visits overseas to enhance language skills and historical knowledge and many others.

We offer a friendly and harmonious campus atmosphere, with fantastic line support and a Senior Leadership Team who genuinely want to see you succeed and develop. NQTs are allocated a mentor, a reduced timetable and the opportunity to attend training sessions run by specialists from within the school. Career opportunities allowing you to grow professionally within Furze Platt include working parties and coaching for experienced teachers and leadership training for aspiring and existing middle and senior leaders.

There are excellent on-site facilities including use of a fully equipped and well-maintained gym, a café serving hot food and freshly made snacks and staff rooms with plenty of working space, your own laptop, student laptops and interactive whiteboards. As well as access to an employee advice service providing information, helpful resources and other services, we are finding ways of maintaining our community spirit and staff involvement through socially distanced initiatives, current examples being our first on-line book club, and a Furze Platt fantasy football league. In addition, freshly brewed coffee is ready for you during break-time with the occasional treat to help you through the week!
