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.
Thanks to all who visited the Fintonia Christmas Fair on Friday. The event was generously sponsored by Jacksons Estate Agents, and proceeds will go to the Sally Walker Bursary, providing free school places at Finton House to local children whose parents cannot meet the cost of school fees.
Well done to the Year 6 Netballers for their convincing wins against Oliver House.
Every child in the school was involved in making poppies lastweek, and Year 4 created a special display of their own thoughts on Armistice Day...
Thank you to everyone for supporting Thomson House's Crazy Hair Day and their charity, Kids for Kids.
A special mention this week must go to the Year 3 boys' football teams for their performance against Broomwood Hall. The boys played very well and all four teams were victorious.
We are proud to say that so far this term, Finton House has won 44 of the 58 football and netball matches they have played. Very impressive!
The Year 2 boys were in action against The Falcons School this week. Congratulations to the A1 and A2 teams for emphatic wins, and thank you to all the parents who went along for their fantastic support.
