The government is planning to introduce a new “National Funding Formula”
The government is planning to introduce a new “National Funding Formula” for all schools from April 2018. The government’s stated intention is to introduce a funding formula that addresses the long-standing inequalities in school funding that have existed for many years. Unfortunately the impact of the planned changes will be to significantly reduce the money available to schools in Coventry.

Please help our schools by supporting their efforts to make the changes needed and to provide your school with the funding it needs to provide the best possible education for your child. Please sign!
Foxford - Science Week 2017
Year 9 Musical - DAY OF THE DEAD
Year 9 musical ‘Day of the Dead’ was a huge success. Students took the audience to South America, exploring its traditions, culture, music celebrations and people. The ‘Day of the Dead’ or ‘El Dia de los Muertos’ is a 3 day Mexican holiday celebrating and remembering friends and family who have died. Musicians performed their own compositions, students wrote and performed their own street rap. Finally the audience were led out following a carnival procession reflecting the South American celebration of ‘Mardis Gras'.
