Finham Park is a popular, successful and exciting secondary comprehensive school, located in the south-west of Coventry. The school became an ‘Outstanding’ convertor to Academy status in August 2011. Currently oversubscribed, the school attracts students from across the city.

We have the best results ever. In 2015:

  • 80.5% of our Year 11 students achieved 5 or more A*-C at GCSE including English Language & Mathematics.
  • 21% of Finham Park students achieved 5 or more A*/A grades at GCSE.
  • Reflecting our specialism, over 89.2% students achieved 2 GCSE qualifications in Mathematics.
  • Our A Level results are the highest in Coventry and well above national averages.
  • 100% of those students who applied to University gained a place at a destination of their choice (over 80% first choice!).

Standards are consistently above national averages – a credit to the students, their families and our staff. We are a High-Performing Specialist School in Mathematics and Computing and also have National Support School and Leading Edge status. Additionally, we offer a large and ambitious community education programme, which has around 1,000 people enrolled onto a wide range of courses.
