CONGRATULATIONS TO THE YEAR 5 BOYS WHO WON THE TRINITY SCHOOL SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY AND MATHS (STEM) COMPETITION WITH THEIR DESIGN FOR A SPACE STATION.
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, borne 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.
We are off on our summer holidays for a bit. The office will reopen on 24th August and the Autumn Term starts on 10th September.
A group of Year 5 children went to Trinity School for a STEM (science, technology, engineering & maths) day. They competed with eleven other schools to design and build a space station using K'nex. Our team made sure that they fulfilled the design brief. The Finton House team were 'clear' winners, Trinity School were very impressed by how well they worked together and by how polite the team were.
