We aim to provide another outstanding secondary school for parents and children in Coventry with the ‘world class’ aspirations and the highest expectations. Finham Park 2 is a non-selective, comprehensive school for students aged 11-18. The school is built on the traditional values of PRIDE, RESPECT, and RESPONSIBILITY. Pivotal to this is a positive ethos and culture of learning and success for all students. We pay particular regard to outstanding achievement for all students whatever their academic starting point and a commitment to lifelong learning for all stakeholders.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which will allow students to successfully work towards GCSE and A level qualifications. We have the highest expectations in terms of academic standards, a business-like approach in the way that students present themselves in terms of school uniform, being in school every day and on time. We provide students with a safe and secure environment in which to learn and develop a team ethos from day one. The development of student leadership roles is key to developing young people who are confident, articulate and have a willingness to embrace new challenges. Finham Park 2 is a place in which parents, governors and the local community are valued partners working alongside the school- they all have a role in contributing to and supporting the culture and ethos of the school. Finham Park School is a high achieving academy with an outstanding Ofsted inspection, excellent outcomes at both GCSE and A level and a thriving sixth form. Students are part of a learning community that leads to both high academic outcomes as well as valued personal qualities. Finham Park School is the basis for Finham Park 2.
