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 2018-19 and have a full cohort of Year 7, 8, 9 & 10 students. Our students are smart, thoughtful, inquisitive, well-behaved and polite.

The school was set up by leaders from the ‘Outstanding’ (2015) Finham Park School and we moved into our newly refurbished building in September 2016. We are proud to be part of and supported by the Finham Park Multi Academy Trust.

Already a ‘good’ school (Ofsted 2018), our aim is to not only be ‘outstanding’ but ‘world class’. Finham Park 2 is a mainstream, non-selective, comprehensive school for students aged 11-18 based in west Coventry. Our school is built on traditional values- pride, respect and responsibility, and we have high expectations of both students and staff. 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.

MFL plays an important role in the school and the majority of students study a language to GCSE, with Spanish set to be offered in the school’s soon to be opened Sixth Form. The Governors are seeking to appoint an innovative and highly motivated Teacher of French and Spanish to join a strong and enthusiastic team in the Modern Languages Department where teachers are committed to delivering a high quality, lively and interesting curriculum with a strong teaching and learning ethic based on the latest research into MFL teaching.

The department offers French, Spanish and Mandarin through the MEP programme, and has forged links with schools in France, Spain and China and offers visits to all three.

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 KS3 and KS4 plus 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: Monday 30th March at 12pm
