Ms Debi James
Ms Debi James
Day Housemistress
Ms James is on duty in House from 8am-5.30pm, Monday to Friday. She has three grown-up children who all have their own homes. She loves walking and swims a mile every weekday morning before work.


During the week members of the teaching staff come over to assist the Housemistress. This gives the academic staff an opportunity to get to know the pupils better and it can also be a great help if a girl would like an informal chat about their subject. 

Gibbins is home to St Mary’s LV Form.  This is their first year of GCSEs. The girls are given their own study rooms for the first time in their school career. House is open throughout the day and evening so girls may come and study at any time when they don't have lessons. This encourages the girls to study more independently.  Gibbins is situated away from the main school along with the other senior Houses. 

Gibbins was opened in 1979 by Miss Gibbins who was Head of St Mary’s from 1946 to 1972.  In 2014 the kitchen and laundry facilities were upgraded and a new House Office was created as part of the redesign.
