GLF Schools

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.

The School Day

The official part of the school day starts with morning registration from 8.30 and ends at 15.00. This includes breaks, but not optional before or after school activities. The total time this amounts to in a typical week is 32.5hrs.

Each school day begins at 08.30 and ends at 15.00. The timings are as follows:
