Football Season Kicks Off With Two Huge Finton Victories

22nd September 23

The Year 6 A Team Celebrating Victory

Finton footballers have started the season with a bang as both our Year 5 and Year 6 teams emerged victorious from their respective tournaments at Epsom College this week.

Spectators at the Year 6 tournament were especially touched to see Old Fintonians (now at Epsom) watching from the sidelines. One parent said “Not one school there was supported by their old school friends like Finton House. It was heart-warming to see all the ex-Finton pupils run to the pitch (giving up their break and lunch times) to watch the games and sit/stand right behind their old school buddies as they queued up for their trophy.” Congratulations boys!

We had yet more sporting success on Thursday as our Year 5 mixed boys & girls football team travelled over to Epsom to play on Thursday. The team was undefeated on the day and crowned champions. Mr Anthony, Head of Games, said, “This team represented Finton with pride, and in turn we’re all very proud of them. Well done to everyone for a great result.”

Finton in Partnership: Sharing Our Resources with Local Schools

7th September 23

We are proud to have held a rewarding programme of outreach events last term which saw us sharing our resources with local schools.

Our partnership initiatives are made possible due to donations made by Finton families to the Annual Fund, which enables the school to reach into the local community and develop meaningful partnerships for the benefit of all children. To read more about these initiatives please click here.

On Wednesday 21st June, to mark Make Music Day, our Year 4’s were joined by Year 4 pupils from Furzedown Primary School at Trinity Chapel for a big musical bonanza! “Children from both schools enjoyed an interactive workshop by Cavatina Chamber Music Trust, and specifically by Connaught Brass ensemble. The children were introduced to the different sounds of brass instruments – some of them even got the chance to conduct the ensemble!” says Miss Maria, Finton’s Head of Music. The event involved performances by the children from each school as well as a collaborative performance of the song “Let Love Shine Through”.

The sun shone down on Trinity Fields on the afternoon of Tuesday 23rd May, when Year 3 pupils from Finton House and Earlsfield Primary School came together for an afternoon of cricket skills development. Pupils worked in collaborative groups under the instruction of cricket coaches from Spencer Cricket Club, alongside staff members from both schools. Four coaches worked with all of the boys and girls through a circuit of different activities, which they thoroughly enjoyed. It was reported that all of the pupils impressed the coaches from Spencer Cricket!

We were also delighted to host the inaugural Junior Trinity Shield on Monday 26th June, in collaboration with Trinity Fields. Year 4 pupils from Finton and three neighbouring primary schools, Fircroft, Smallwood and Furzedown, were delighted to spend a fun afternoon together playing in a cricket tournament. All the pupils were excited to all go home with a medal and a huge smile on their faces.

A very big thank you to Miss Olivia (Assistant Head: Partnerships) and Miss India (Head of Marketing and Development) from the Finton community together with Miss Maria and Mr Anthony (Head of Games).
