School profile

Finham Park School

Finham Park is a popular, successful and exciting secondary comprehensive school of over 1,500 students, located in the south-west of Coventry. The school became an 'Outstanding' convertor to Academy status in August 2011 and became the lead school in the 'Finham Park Multi-Academy Trust' in 2015. Consistently oversubscribed, the school attracts students from across the city.

Standards are consistently above national averages with a strong focus on restorative justice practices - a credit to the students, their families and our staff. We are a high-performing school that received 'World Class School' status in 2015, 2018, (International Accrediting World Class School in 2019) and 2021 and are also a National Support School with Leading Edge status.
