It is with sincere sadness that we report Sir Tom Finney died 14.2.14. He ensured a legacy of loyalty, sincerity and commitment and will be sadly missed by the school, by Preston and by the Footballing community world wide.
Sir Tom Finney Community High School was opened in September 2008 as a generic secondary special school following the amalgamation of the three previous schools on the Moor Park Site.
It was officially opened by football legend Sir Tom Finney whose handprints and replica statue have pride of place at the school entrance.
Having taken best practise from the previous schools and worked tirelessly to create an environment that caters for a broad spectrum of special educational needs and Learning Difficulties and Disabilities, Sir Tom Finney Community High School has developed its own distinct identity, ethos and principles on which it works. This was recognised by OFSTED, who inspected the school in October 2012. They said this is an outstanding school where students make excellent progress, teaching is outstanding with interesting and exciting activities and there are opportunities for all.
