Finham Park 2 is delighted to have an in-principle agreement to secure a permanent site for September 2016. The new site which is the Land Registry building on Torrington Avenue- will enable the school to deliver its highly aspirational ‘World Class’ vision in exciting, newly refurbished, high- quality facilities. Finham Park 2 is due to be full with 120 Year 7 students when it opens on its temporary site at the current Finham Park School on Green Lane in September 2015.

“This is fantastic news and we are absolutely delighted. We are extremely grateful for the huge amount of support shown by Coventry City Council, The Land Registry Office and the Education Funding Agency in securing a permanent site for Finham Park 2 Free School. The new site will allow us to fulfil our vision to provide an outstanding education for more Coventry children in the future.” 

Mark Bailie
Executive Headteacher

“This is a superb site, located where there is most need and demand from Coventry parents. We now have a superb opportunity to secure a new secondary school for the children of Coventry. There remain some details to iron out, which will be properly subject to the independent planning process. I am confident that this site will provide Finham Park 2 students and staff with an inspiring and dynamic environment in which to learn.”

Land Registry is delighted to be able to support the local community by making our Coventry Office available to become a school for so many young students. It shows how we can work together with different parts of Government to support joint aims and use Government property more efficiently. We are now looking forward to finding a new location for our staff in the centre of Coventry City.
