Head Teacher's Welcome
I am delighted to welcome you to Glyn School, which I believe is one of the highest performing and exciting schools in the country.
Glyn School is a vibrant school for boys aged 11– 16 and a successful mixed Sixth Form. Founded in 1927, we have a rich history of academic excellence, sporting prowess, artistic achievement and service to the community. In 2014 we were designated a teaching school, one of a select number that represent the most outstanding and innovative practice nationally. In addition, Glyn School benefits from being a founder member of GLF schools, a multi-academy trust where the focus on collaboration, leadership and school improvement enables students to ‘Grow, Learn and Flourish'.
At Glyn, we hold high expectations of all our students in every respect. We aspire to provide students with an outstanding learning experience each and every day. Every decision that we make is centred on their learning and achievement as we seek to enable each one to meet and exceed their potential. Our incredibly dedicated and talented staff never give up on a student.
We have an outstanding pastoral system, which is focused on ensuring that our students succeed and leave us as confident, articulate and aspirational young adults. The success of our school is based on a partnership of integrity and mutual respect. A key factor in achieving this is working closely with parents, enabling students to progress and develop in all aspects of their lives – personal, academic, creative and sporting.
Learn – Achieve – Enjoy – Succeed
Our school motto articulates all we aspire to in every lesson and for every student
We want students to enjoy their learning and as a result achieve and succeed in all aspects of their academic and professional careers. We strive to ensure that their experience is founded on our eight core values:
• Learning & Achievement
• Enjoyment & Community
• Challenge & Opportunity
• Respect & Integrity
‘Integrity and Respect’ underpin our entire philosophy. A school community motivated by integrity and embodying a true understanding of respect and care for others is a successful school.
Our website aims to give you an insight into our character and ethos. However, to fully appreciate everything Glyn School can offer, we warmly invite you to come and see for yourself.
On behalf of all the staff and students, we look forward to welcoming you and your family soon.
Mr Phillip Wheatley
Glyn is a successful school and aspires to sustain this into the future. ‘Outstanding’ does not equate to ‘perfection’ but we aspire to become an exceptional school, with the students at the centre of our work.
