Dear Parent / Carer

Now we are back at school, I just wanted to contact everyone who has expressed an interest in Finham Park 2, especially as many of you will soon be making important decisions about where your child will go to secondary school in 2015.

  1. We are still waiting to hear from the Department for Education (DfE) if we have been approved to open. Having spoken to them yesterday, they said we should hear in the next few weeks.
  1. We are still hopeful that our site will be in the SW of the city- we will only know for definite once we hear from the DfE.
  2. Regarding admissions, interested parents will be in a “win-win” situation. You will be able to apply for 3 Coventry Schools on the Local Authority Admissions Form as well asapplying to Finham Park 2 – one from the LA and one from Finham Park 2.  You can make a final decision in the first week of March 2015, when you receive information regarding your allocation.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience. We will of course let you know of any decisions by the DfE as soon as we hear.

Kind regards

Russell Plester
