Welcome from Headmaster Ben Freeman
Happiness is in abundance here. This is largely due to the strong family ethos that is Finton House, preserved by upholding the two founding principles of the school with a non-selective intake and a fully inclusive education. From the first day in our Reception class, children are nurtured and guided through a range of quality learning experiences, leaving us at the end of Year 6 as confident, caring and responsible young people with a love for learning. Our highly successful record of entry into first choice schools at 11+, including a high percentage of scholarships and awards, is something we are very proud of. Pupils of all ability thrive at Finton House.
The happy faces of the pupils and staff throughout this website are not staged, they are just an honest reflection of this secure and caring learning environment. Look out for the specialist facilities enjoyed by Science, Design & Technology, Music and Art as well as the large sports field where children of all ages are coached in a variety of sport and enjoy a full fixture list.
To truly understand the popular appeal of a Finton education, please go to the Admissions page for details of our forthcoming open events for prospective families. I look forward to welcoming you to Finton House soon.
