What is the job role?
Leadership Scale 11-15: £54,091 - £59,581
Starting September 2022
We are delighted to announce that we are recruiting an Assistant Headteacher for Finham Park 2, commencing September 2022. This exciting opportunity has become available due to the promotion to a senior Trust role of our current post holder. This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional and inspirational leader to work closely with the Headteacher and Governors of our thriving and successful school.
Finham Park 2 is an exciting, 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 have grown year on year, including our 6th form, which opened in 2020.
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 team. We continue to be heavily oversubscribed each year. Our last Ofsted (June 2018) described Finham Park 2 as a good school in all areas 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 2 is a truly comprehensive school with almost 700 students on roll. The vast majority of our students are happy, well-behaved, friendly, inquisitive, polite and wear their uniform with pride. On entry students are broadly in line with national averages with approximately 85+% middle or higher prior attainment.
We offer an exciting curriculum that provides opportunities for all students to ensure they all achieve and make the best progress they are capable of, no matter what their starting points; a curriculum that nurtures every child’s talents and provides exceptional opportunities for students to have the ‘time of their lives’.
Finham Park 2 is supported by and proud to be part of Finham Park Multi Academy Trust. As part of the Multi Academy Trust, we enjoy working in collaboration with the other MAT schools. This provides fantastic opportunities for both our staff and students.
Successful candidates will join an established and strong team, where our teachers are committed to delivering a high quality, lively and interesting curriculum to challenge and inspire all of our students.
We are looking to appoint a charismatic, dynamic individual with exceptional leadership skills, who naturally inspires others and is passionate about teaching and its impact on learning. The successful candidate will be driven by a commitment to create the best possible educational opportunities for our pupils, in order to raise aspirations and transform lives.
