Welcome from Acting Head Karol-An Kirkman
Thank you for visiting Finton House's website. I hope you will spend some time exploring its pages in order to find out more about the education we provide, and to glimpse some of the special features that make Finton House stand out.
Finton House is independent co-education from 4 to 11 the way that it should be. It is an exceptional school that benefits enormously from a clear purpose and commitment of everyone involved. At Finton House, learning is synonymous with a sense of adventure and fun. In the classroom, on the sports field, or in the playground, the smiles on the faces of the staff and children are not staged - they are always there, born of trust and genuine excitement about learning and discovery.
As a mother of three, I believe school should offer children the same sense of happiness and security they feel at home. Finton children are encouraged to be themselves. By nurturing each child's sense of self and by modelling strong family values: respect, good manners, tolerance, generosity and a sense of pride, we allow children to grow and learn with confidence, and it is this coupled with outstanding teaching that enables them to achieve excellent results. I am very proud that so many of our leavers win scholarships and awards to their senior schools. The experience we provide enables Finton pupils to step out of our doors with confidence and self-esteem, and a set of values which will benefit them all their lives.
It is an honour to be associated with Finton House, and I hope that you will come and see for yourself the Finton magic in action. Please go to the Admissions page for further details of open events during the year. We look forward to seeing you.
The Year 3 Netball teams were out in force against Hornsby House this week. Well done to the Green Team pictured here for their 3-1 win and the Blue Team for their 3-0 win. The Red and Yellow Teams worked hard on the court and showed much promise.
Our Swimming Squad celebrated a massive victory against Alleyn's this week, beating them 292-271. Words like "impressive", "blitzed" and "awesome" are being bandied around the P.E. Department! We take on the mighty Dulwich College in two weeks. Mr Anthony says "Bring it on!"
We celebrated Harvest Festival this week, with donations of food going to the Randall Close Day Centre, helping to keep elderly people in Wandsworth warm and healthy this winter.
Open Evening - Thursday 8th October 6-8 pm. Everyone welcome. Open Evening is an ideal opportunity to tour the school, look at children's work and speak to members of staff. There is no need to book in advance - just come along. We look forward to seeing you!
