Gumley House School FCJ

About Us

Founded in 1841, our unique Catholic school, living by our motto 'Vive Ut Vivas', ensures our students achieve academic excellence combined with a vibrant extra curricular life.  We prepare our students to take their place in the world as confident, enquiring and caring adults.                                                                      

As a Catholic school we have a strong ethos that reflects our Christian values, making our school a vibrant learning community where staff and students thrive together.  At Gumley we are committed to the high achievement of all our students, whatever their needs and abilities, from the moment they are welcomed into the school in Year 7 until they leave to go on to university, college or employment.  We cultivate success and foster the highest aspirations through excellent teaching, while celebrating the good in every individual.

We will do this be helping each young person to flourish within a school community which is committed to:
- Providing outstanding learning opportunities within a broad and balanced curriculum;
- Creating a safe and caring environment in which every young person enjoys learning;
- Promoting equal opportunity for all members of our school community, regardless of their ability, background or culture;
- Developing an awareness of our world, celebrating diversity and promoting a concern for the environment
