Gumley House School FCJ

Global Development

Education at Gumley is transformative and brings shared values to life.

Our school has a strong heritage in developing global citizenship and we create an environment that promotes cultural empathy with a broader understanding of global issues. Students immediately integrate and benefit from our school’s culturally diverse student population that is made up of 65 home languages.

By the time our students leave sixth form they have achieved a wider set of attitudes, skills and competencies which enables them to more confidently explore the world.

Our students:

  • Actively contribute to international causes.

  • Enthusiastically learn about other international territories and cultures.

  • Willingly stand up to be heard by participating in international debates.

  • Eagerly explore international placements from community projects, leadership programmes to work and study placements.

 

Some examples include: Annual

  • Events from the International Language Festival to Black History.

  • Economics & Business Conferences in Paris.
