Proud to be different
Welcome to Gumley House School FCJ
This is your journey... and Gumley House is the extraordinary opportunity your story deserves.
Our legacy which spans over 180 years of delivering all-girls Catholic education is distinctive and embeds excellence within our DNA. Status as a World Class School means that our students receive the very best education possible, and I am incredibly proud of the forward-thinking and contemporary environment we have created, with traditional values and a Catholic ethos underpinning all that we do.
We are relentless in our drive to prepare students for the future, and the world they will live in as adults. We achieve this through cultivating an all-encompassing student experience, defined by the highest quality education, enriching experiences that extend learning outside of the classroom and outstanding careers provision. At Gumley, our girls are taught that there are no limits, every aspiration is within grasp.
Our strong Catholic ethos is firmly rooted in our school community, influencing our culture, curriculum, philanthropy efforts and dedication to developing every aspect of the student. We believe that our offer of an all-girls Catholic education positively impacts every student in our care, regardless of their faith and this is evidenced in our track record of success and outcomes.
Whilst our girls will have every opportunity to pursue their personal aspirations, they will also learn to appreciate the importance of community and the contribution each individual must make to sustain it at a local, national and international level. Through our core values, immersed in the FCJ traditions, our girls are supported to become positive role models and leaders of the future. You will often find them fundraising and campaigning for various causes, using their voices for good. Our finely tuned offer to students ensure that all girls succeed in both academic and personal realms, that excellence is pursued and achieved both in the classroom and outside of it, ensuring every student develops academically and personally, to their own defined highest standard.
To ensure every student is able to maximise their potential and fully benefit from the Gumley offer, we take the time to get to know every student as an individual. Beginning from the moment they join us, whether that’s in Year 6 on National Offer Day or in-year, enabling us to support her in creating, her story. Gumley girls have their own unique talents and ambitions; we nurture and expand on these, inspiring them to excel as individuals. Our girls are encouraged to think for themselves, question and explore, always supported by their outstanding teachers. They enjoy great success in the academic field, with our Sixth Form students regularly securing places at the most prestigious universities and going onto prosperous careers.
Our girls are inspired, fearless, passionate and powerful. We empower them to seize every opportunity and strengthen their independence and maturity, to take their place in the global world with confidence.
Gumley is simply bursting with creativity, talent and excellence – this is shown in all that we do. I invite you to visit us in person – when you do, you will appreciate what makes our school such a special place.
