GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Ethos, Vision, Aims and Values

Glyn School is a vibrant school for boys aged 11 to 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.  The school carries the responsibility of being graded ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2009 and in 2012.  In 2014 we were designated a Teaching School, one of a select number that represent the most outstanding and innovative practice nationally.  We were also awarded SCITT status in 2015.  Finally, we have the privilege and responsibility of being a founder member of GLF schools, a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) where the focus on collaboration, leadership and school improvement enables students to ‘Grow, Learn and Flourish`.

At Glyn School 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.

Glyn School’s Vision

Glyn School inspires a love of learning and achievement that is founded on the virtues of integrity, kindness, respect and endeavour. Every person is highly valued and encouraged to achieve their full potential. Students are supported to develop and express their character, empowering them to positively contribute to their community.

We are a values-driven school and thus our values underpin all we do.

Integrity and Respect - Integrity means ‘doing the right thing, even when someone isn’t looking’. A school community motivated by integrity and embodying a true understanding of respect and care for others is a successful school. We foster mutual respect between all members of our community and help students develop self-confidence and self-respect, so that they become well-rounded young people.

Kindness - Kindness is a type of behaviour marked by acts of generosity, consideration, showing assistance or concern for others, without expecting praise or reward. Our culture is positive and supportive, which increases students' sense of belonging and happiness towards their learning and school experience.

Endeavour - We nurture students to strive to achieve their true potential through perseverance, hard work and resilience. We place an importance on teamwork and developing independence, where all students are encouraged to embrace challenge, which leads to success and achievement.

Tenax propositi ulteriora peto: Firm of purpose I seek for nothing but the best.

We also continue to use the original school motto from 1927. This is an important part of our heritage and a reference point for our ethos.
