Open Events

We're back!

We are thrilled to be able to open our doors once again and all prospective parents and future Gumley Girls, are warmly invited to attend our school Open Events this year.  Please read all of the information below to see how you can get an insight to our school.

School Open Events
We are holding two Open Mornings which provides the chance to see the school in action on a "normal" working day and to hear a talk from the Headteacher.  These events will begin at 9am with tours of the school.  Mr Byrne will then address all visitors at 10:20am and the morning will conclude by 11am.  These mornings will take place on Thursday 30th September and Tuesday 5th October.

Additionally, we will be holding our annual Open Evening, across three sessions from 5pm till 8pm on Thursday 30th September 2021.  The Open Evening provides a deeper opportunity to speak with members of staff and students, including our vibrant Sixth Form who can give an insight into their journey through Gumley House,

Open Mornings
For the Open Mornings, the school will be in session as usual.  Students will show you around the different areas of the school.  At 10.20am, the Headteacher will welcome you and present key information about the school.  You will also have the opportunity to ask questions. The open Morning will finish by 11am.


Open Evening
The Open Evening gives students a chance to display their gifts and talents and give you a deeper insight to life at Gumley.  In order to minimise excessive contact, the evening will be divided into three sessions.  Each session begins with a brief welcome by the headteacher who will present key information about the school, followed by tours led by our student ambassadors. 

The sessions will begin at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm and we will give you an opportunity to meet some of the staff and girls in different departments and talk to them about the school.  

Unfortunately, due to significant investment in our sports grounds, there is no parking on site.

Meet us virtually!

In order to get a real idea of life at Gumley, you need to listen to the students.  Please have a look at the highlights from last year's virtual Open Event to give you a sense of what makes Gumley unique.  Mr Byrne's presentation concludes with some of the students sharing their experiences.  You can view the recording of the live event below.  If you are having any trouble watching, please visit:



Every day is Open Day

Open events are simply an opportunity for you to see the school at a time we can put aside for you to speak to staff and students.  However, please do feel free to contact us any time and we would be delighted to welcome you by appointment, at a time which suits you.  Our student ambassadors or member of the Senior Leadership Team will meet with you, take you on a tour of our school and answer any questions you may have.

If you wish to visit the school by appointment, please simply contact
