Nestled in the beautiful Suffolk countryside and only 5 minutes from the A14, the centrepiece of school is the eighteenth century Georgian Finborough Hall.
This is the historic backdrop for an outstanding range of buildings and facilities, on a spectacular forty-acre site.
The schools traditional setting is juxtaposed with resources that provide a rich opportunity to prepare our children for the constantly evolving world of technology. Whether creating on a Mac, learning to code and programme on a PC or accessing the multitudinous range of information at our fingertips, our pupils can do it all with the highest levels of safety assured.
Our youngest children in Pre-Prep have wonderfully interesting spaces to learn, from their classrooms to outdoor areas, including our Forest School: spaces that ignite their imagination and open up the excitement of learning.
All Senior School academic areas enjoy specialist classrooms, whilst locating the Prep School in Finborough Hall has given our children beautiful flexible spaces that definitely inspire excellent learning across the core subjects.
The creative pursuits are richly resourced to nurture and challenge those with a particular proclivity for performing or designing, with freedom for expression of artistic talent.
Sport runs deep in our veins at Finborough and our facilities including a state of the art multi purpose sports centre, designed to facilitate outstanding athletic performance across the rich array of sports our pupils experience. Developing their strength and conditioning in our Olympic standard professional gym or competing upon our expertly prepared pitches, the backdrop could not be better to enable true sporting excellence.
Finborough is a truly inspiring place, with space for our children to breath and to grow, a place where we value open spaces and connecting with their environment. Our school has everything to ensure the best possible preparation for life.
The sports hall houses our new state of the art gym, which is used by all of our students irrespective of sporting ability. The gym offers the opportunity for our elite athletes to continue to develop their athletic ability through sessions with our Strength and Conditioning Coach and also offers an opportunity for our students who don’t participate in core sports to stay active.
The gym is equipped to an Olympic standard and is used as a satellite centre for Northampton Saints Academy, who run their Under 15 and 16 strength and conditioning programme from Finborough.
We are constantly developing our facility and programmes in order to best support all Finborough students in their physical development.
Free access to the gym is provided to our staff for 52 weeks of the year and parents who wish to join can do so for a small fee. If you are interested in joining the gym please contact a member of the office team who will be happy to provide you with more information.
If you’re not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you’re determined to learn, no one can stop you.
