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.

Football and Rugby Trials September 2022

At Glyn School, both football and rugby are played to a very high standard. The Trials for these teams will take place at the The Paul Beeken Sports Pavillion (Priest Hill) on the dates and times shown below:  

Wednesday 7 September 2022 Saturday 10 September 2022

Football - Abbey, Bourne, Carew and Derby

3.30pm - 5.30pm at Priest Hill

Rugby - Abbey, Bourne, Carew and Derby

Football - Merton, St Benet, Oaks and Tudor 

9.00am - 11.00am at Priest Hill

There is limited parking space at Priest Hill, so in order to help prevent congestion, parents are asked to park in the NESCOT car park and walk to the playing fields.

There will also be a final trial for selected football students on Saturday 17 September 2022 from 9.30am to 11.00am.  A further round of trials for rugby may be organised for this date also, however, we will let students know any further details.

Students involved in the Wednesday trials should meet outside the School Canteen at 3.10 pm, at which point they will be escorted up to Priest Hill by members of the PE staff.  

All students must wear their full school Games kit, which consists of the blue reversible rugby shirt, blue Glyn shorts, and blue socks.  For rugby, every student must also bring a gum shield (students without gumshields will not be allowed to play in the contact element of the trials) and for football, shin pads must be worn. Goalkeepers should also bring gloves and a goalkeeper top of their choice. Students will also need enough water for the session, any personal medication, and adequate sun protection in the event of warm conditions.

If you have any questions relating to these trials, please contact Mr.McKay (Extracurricular Opportunities Lead) via email at
