Admissions Policy & Criteria for the Academic Year 2016 – 2017
Gumley House is a Catholic School for girls (with boys admitted into the Sixth Form). It is an Academy in the FCJ Educational Trust with Business & Enterprise and Languages specialisms. Religious education and worship is at the heart of the school and its curriculum. The School accepts applications from those who are able to benefit from and contribute to the religious character of the school. At a Catholic school, Catholic doctrine and practice permeate every aspect of the school’s activity. It is essential therefore that the Catholic character of the school’s education is fully supported by all families in the school. All applicants are therefore expected to give their full, unreserved and positive support for the aims and ethos of the school.
We encourage parents to visit our school in order to find out more about how we work and the education that we offer. An Open Evening is held at the end of September or early October when interested families may look round the school and meet the Headteacher and staff. The School Prospectus and Supplementary Information Form for admission are available at the Open Evening or at any time from the school website.
Parents are welcome to arrange a visit by contacting the school office. Such visits, however, are not obligatory and do not form part of the process of deciding which children are to be offered a place at the school. If you would like to visit the school to discuss the entry of your child please telephone our Admissions Officer, Mrs Clare on 020 8568 8692.
A New Parents’ Evening is held in July for all new students, their parents and families. Students are admitted to all other year groups only if places are available.
