    Our Ethos & Values

    At Finham Park we strive to inspire through the delivery of a “World Class” education – success for all our learners. This school is a beacon of excellence for our community where everyone feels safe, valued, included and proud.

    We nurture every learner’s natural curiosity – providing them with life-enriching opportunities to develop socially, academically and morally. We do this through our 5 Finham core values of integrity, courageousness, humility, kindness and perseverance.

    We value honesty, teamwork and leadership; enjoyment, excitement and challenge are key features of life here. Learners develop confidence, resilience, respect for others and a life-long love of learning, making them valued members of the Coventry community and contributors to both national and international stages.

    Finham Park School is a popular, successful and exciting secondary comprehensive school of over 1,650 students, located in the south-west of Coventry. The school became an 'Outstanding' convertor to Academy status in August 2011 and became the lead and founding school in the 'Finham Park Multi-Academy Trust' in 2015. Consistently oversubscribed, the school attracts students from across the city.
