Are you a trailblazer? Do you want to be part of something new and exciting in Coventry?

Finham Park 2 is an exciting, innovative, friendly and supportive 11-19 co-educational comprehensive school based on the West side of Coventry near the border of Solihull and close to Warwick University. We opened in September 2015 with 120 students and are growing year on year until we reach our full size of 800, including 6th form, by 2021. In September 2016 we moved to our new building- a light and spacious, high quality refurbishment with superb facilities including a brand new sports hall. We are fully staffed with a positive, supportive, forward thinking staff team. We continue to be heavily oversubscribed each year. Our recent Ofsted (June 2018) described Finham Park 2 as a good school with “high aspirations for all pupils”, “a very comprehensive curriculum”, where “leaders are passionate about pupils’ development as fully rounded individuals.” and “pupils have positive attitudes to learning….and want to do well.”

However, we are not complacent and our goal is not just to be an outstanding school, but a ‘world class’ one – something for the whole community to be proud of!

Finham Park School (and more recently Finham Park Multi Academy Trust), the parent organisation of Finham Park 2, has been a highly regarded part of the educational landscape for over forty years. It has a long and proud history or providing the highest quality teaching and an innovative curriculum. The school has been judged as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’  by Ofsted over a 10 year period- a reflection of the ambition leaders have for all of our students in the multi-academy trust. Finham Park 2 reflects the ‘world class’ aspirations of Finham Park School, building on our core values of Pride, Respect and Responsibility. We believe that school is about children ‘having the time of their lives’ and provide opportunities for this to be a reality. We are supported by and proud to be part of Finham Park Multi Academy Trust. 

The Governors are seeking to appoint an innovative and highly motivated teacher to join a strong and enthusiastic team in the Humanities Faculty, 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 History up to KS5 and other Humanities subjects (Geography, RE and PSHE) at least to KS3.

Finham Park 2 is committed to the personal development of all of their staff and can offer: 

 Outstanding professional development

 Supportive staff and a strong team ethos

 Supportive leadership

 Progression opportunities as the school grows

 Opportunities for KS4 & post 16 teaching in the future
