Why Work at Finchley Catholic?

At Finchley Catholic High School, we offer a unique and fulfilling opportunity to be part of a community with a rich tradition and a promising future. We take pride in our distinctive Catholic identity, where every member of our community is valued for who they are.

Our commitment is to provide a nurturing, secure, and joyful environment where students can thrive, learn effectively, and find happiness. We believe that when students are happy, safe, and supported, they can excel in their educational and faith journeys.

As educators and mentors, we walk alongside our young people, guiding them in their spiritual and educational growth. Our ultimate goal is to prepare them for the next phase of life, equipping them to make meaningful contributions to the world around them.

Our School Context

We are an 11-18 boys' comprehensive school with a co-educational 6th Form, deeply rooted in serving the Catholic community of North London and South Hertfordshire within the Diocese of Westminster. While we cherish our history, we are also forward-thinking and open to continuous improvement, ensuring high-quality education for all. Our school enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and is in high demand among parents/carers.

Our Catholic faith is at the core of our mission. We prioritise the spiritual and moral development of our students and nurture positive relationships within our community. Outreach and helping those in need are central to our values, defining the character of our school.

While our staff come from diverse faith backgrounds, they share a commitment to our Catholic ethos and values. They all contribute significantly to our unique community, striving to make a positive impact on the lives of the young people we serve.

Our students represent diverse backgrounds and areas, enriching our community with a wealth of cultures and socio-economic diversity. They and their families have high expectations and value education as a means to improve life chances.

We highly value the partnership with our parental community, recognising parents/carers as the 'prime educators.' Our success is built on a strong and mutually supportive relationship with parents, ensuring the best provision and outcomes for their young person.
