Finham is a mainly residential part of the city of Coventry, West Midlands, England, and is the city's southernmost suburb, approximately 3 miles (5 km) from Coventry city centre. Finham shares its northern boundary along the A45 with the suburb of Styvechale/Stivichall to the north, and part of its southeastern boundary is shared with the village of Baginton in Warwickshire. The suburb of Green Lane lies directly to the west and the hamlet of King's Hill lies within a mile of Finham at Coventry's southernmost point.


Finham is roughly triangular in shape; its northern boundary is along the Kenpas Highway (A45); its southeastern boundary is along the A46, and its southwestern boundary is, for the most part, along Green Lane.

As a Catholic School, we recognise the uniqueness of your child and the need to build on the firm family Catholic values established in the home and in the Primary School where your child has been educated. Our children here are encouraged to bear witness to Gospel values of love, truth, forgiveness, peace and justice. We believe that a respect for themselves, the school community and the wider world will help them to develop into positive citizens of the future.
