Finham Park 2

Grade 3 £17,173 - £18,870 (Actual Salary £14,234-£15,641)

35.5 hours a week, term time only plus 5 days

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 moved into our newly refurbished building on Torrington Avenue in 2016. 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 a professional and enthusiastic individual who will work both independently and alongside teachers, providing valuable support for Teaching and Learning activities, and eventually develop their own initiatives. The successful candidate will provide support in lessons but will also mentor students and teach small groups having the potential to help students through some of the most difficult stages of their education and lives. They will also use specialist knowledge for planning lessons and developing support materials, and provide care and supervision to young people.


The role will work across all subjects and year groups but the successful candidate will also have the opportunity to work with students of all abilities. The role will need to develop relationships with these students to maximize their learning potential over their school career.
