Finley High School is a school with 486 students, located in Finley in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia.

The schools has an award-winning Show Team, which shows sheep and cattle. They also receive exceptional School Certificate and HSC results. The teaching staff at Finley High School have won many awards, the most recent of which was a Director General's award for excellence in education, awarded to the Principal Phillip Carroll in December 2007 who left at the end of 2009 to teach in Albury.

In 2013 Finley High School introduced the 'Senior College Model' for studying the HSC.[1] This model stretches the HSC over two years, allowing students to do three subjects at double time in Year's Eleven and Twelve. In doing this the Year Eleven and Twelve students merge in classes providing bigger classes and thus more subject options for the students.[2] This HSC model has been implemented in other schools throughout rural NSW Corowa High School[3] being one.
