Are you a trailblazer? Do you want to be part of something new and exciting in Coventry?
Finham Park 2 is an exciting new co-educational academy in Coventry that opened in September 2015. Already a popular choice with local parents, we are significantly over-subscribed for 2017-18 and have a full cohort of Year 7, 8 & 9 students. Our students are smart, thoughtful, inquisitive, well-behaved and polite; on entry they are significantly above the national average for attainment in English and Mathematics.
The school was set up by leaders from the ‘Outstanding’ (2015) Finham Park School and we recently moved into our newly refurbished building on Torrington Avenue. We are proud to be part of and supported by the Finham Park Multi Academy Trust.
Our vision is to provide another outstanding secondary school for parents and children in Coventry with the highest expectations. Finham Park 2 is a mainstream, non-selective, comprehensive school for students aged 11-18. The new academy is built on traditional values. Pivotal to this is a positive ethos and culture of learning and success for all students. There is particular regard to outstanding achievement for all students whatever their academic starting point and a commitment to lifelong learning for all stakeholders.
The Governors are seeking to appoint an innovative and highly motivated teacher to join a strong and enthusiastic team in the Faculty of English where teachers are committed to delivering a high quality, lively and interesting curriculum to challenge and inspire all our students. The successful candidate will be required to teach English to Key Stage 3 and 4 and Key Stage 5 as the school expands.
Finham Park 2 is committed to the personal development of all of their staff and can offer:
ü Outstanding professional development
ü Supportive staff and a strong team ethos
ü Supportive leadership
ü Progression opportunities as the school grows
ü Opportunities for KS4 & post 16 teaching in the future
ü Superb new facilities
ü Being part of something new and exciting for the City of Coventry
Closing date: Tuesday 20th March 2018
