FCJ Vision and Values

Gumley House School


Vision and FCJ Values

one of five FCJ schools NATIONALLY

All five schools, which are under the Trusteeship of the religious society the Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ), share a common Vision which was inspired by the Gospel and true to Marie Madeleine’s founding ideal.

The FCJ Schools Vision
Our vision is that FCJ schools are communities of personal and academic excellence.
Strong in companionship, the unique giftedness of every person in these faith communities is recognised, nourished and celebrated.

Our hope and expectation is that, through God’s grace working in us all, each young person grows into their best self, with zest for life and the generosity and confidence to use their talents and gifts in the service of others.

You can read more about our FCJ Vision and Values and how they were created in the Vision and Values booklet.  

Vision and Values Booklet

Our core values play an integral part our school community, each value is celebrated in its entirety with our girls having many opportunities to showcase how they live and breathe them.  At the end of each academic year we celebrate the students that have continually demonstrated the values throughout all aspects of school life at our annual Awards Evening.

Excellence is incorporated within every aspect of school life and living. We set the highest possible standards as we strive to achieve our personal best and to become what we aspire to be.

Companionship is important for establishing a sense of belonging. The school seeks to create an atmosphere where respect, communication and friendship are all present.
Trust and shared experiences will provide the motivation to enable our students to learn, support and grow together.

The Dignity of each person is recognised and celebrated at all times.  We actively encourage maturity, consideration for others, and self-respect among the students; in their attitude towards their learning and how they conduct themselves both in and outside of school.

Through Justice, our students will endeavour to treat their peers, the school and wider community with compassion, empathy, and courtesy. Our girls will be known for their reputation of honesty, integrity and fairness.

Hope inspires and enables us to persevere and challenge in the face of difficulties and disillusionment whilst empowering us to fulfil our aspirations and grow towards spiritual, intellectual and emotional maturity. 

Gentleness is an understated quality but an extremely important one. Gentleness encourages us to think before we speak and act; it fosters the right relationships by helping us to keep calm and peaceful in all situations, so we always act out of love.
