Headteacher's Welcome

Gumley House School


Welcome to Gumley House School FCJ where we take the time to get to know each girl as an individual to be able to support her in creating her own 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.

Academic rigour and exam preparation are a given but we also understand the importance of developing the whole person too – be that in sport, the arts or a multitude of other areas, our extensive enrichment programme ensures that every girl develops her passions and explores new possibilities. These experiences, in turn, help to build the skills and qualities that will support her in her future endeavours.

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.

Gumley is simply bursting with creativity, talent and excellence – this is shown in all that we do. So I invite you to visit us in person – when you do, you will appreciate what makes our school such a special place.
