The ATF2 international collaboration is intending to demonstrate nanometre beam sizes required for the future Linear Colliders. An essential part of the beam diagnostics needed to achieve this goal is the high resolution cavity beam position monitors (BPMs). In this paper we report on the S-band system installed in the final focus region of the new ATF2 extraction beamline. It only includes 4 BPMs, but they are mounted on the most critical final focus magnets squeezing the beam down to 35 nm. We discuss both the design and the first operational experience with the system.
