Where Children Grow, Learn and Flourish

Our History

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School, an academy since 2011, and Danetree Junior School. Having worked in partnership since October 2010, both schools’ governing bodies and leadership teams believed that, as like-minded partners, working in different sectors gave incredible opportunities to the children and students of both schools.

Armed with that simple philosophy, we began our ‘journey’ — a journey that would help us become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 17,000 children in 42 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Our Culture

What we say in our motto is true: "Where Children Grow, Learn and Flourish." Each of our schools has its own distinct character and culture which is respectful of its community and context but their utmost common ground is that it is our staff that make each school. Our collective GLF culture is built upon caring for our children and students by enabling our staff to provide the best possible education with the resources at our disposal.

Our Vision

All our children and young people will receive the best possible start in life.

Every child will transition successfully to their next stage of education, training or employment.

Our Purpose

We work together sharing experience, sharing resources and sharing support. Our schools are stronger by working together.

Our Mission

We exist to serve our communities by providing all children and staff the opportunity to grow, to learn and to flourish
