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 to 11 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.

The Governors are seeking to appoint an innovative and highly motivated Teacher of Science to join a strong and enthusiastic team in the Science Department where teachers are committed to delivering a high quality, lively and interesting curriculum to challenge and inspire all our students. 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
