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.

Getting Involved

Extracurricular and School Clubs

There are plenty of opportunities at Glyn School to join clubs and to get involved in extracurricular activities. The full list is published at the start of each year, so watch out in September for the activities and clubs you will be able to join.  

If you are musical, there is a different club on offer each lunchtime in the Music Department. Soul Band, Ukulele Group and Junior Band are just three examples. Students who join these clubs will then also have the chance to perform in a variety of concerts, such as the Spring Concert, Creative Arts Evening and the Christmas Carol Concert. There is also an opportunity to apply to be part of the Year 7 Band initiative which enables you to learn a musical instrument in small groups for a reduced cost, and also to be part of a wind band which will perform at several events.  We also have a Glyn Podcast club where students learn to create, record and produce their own podcast shows.

If you enjoy performing, there are many opportunities to get involved with Drama and Theatre at Glyn School.  Drama Club runs every Autumn and Spring term on a Thursday between 3.00 and 4.00pm and taking part in this can lead to a performance at the end of the Spring Term.  We also present a Creative Arts Evening every June. In addition to this, every year we have a whole school production, performed in July. We alternate between performing in the Proctor Hall, Adrian Mann Theatre and Epsom Playhouse. In 2019, our production was ‘School of Rock’ at the Epsom Playhouse, which we performed to over 900 people across two evenings. This follows on from the huge success of ‘Guys and Dolls’ at the Adrian Mann Theatre. We have a cast, crew and band of over 90 students involved from all year groups. This year we are planning performing Bugsy Malone at the Adrian Mann.  Further details for 2022-2023 Drama and Theatre opportunities will be published to students, Parents and Carers.

Other clubs on offer include the IT Club, Lego Club, Reading Club, Drama Club, Hockey Club and the Debating Club, to name just a few.

The clubs run before school, at lunchtime and after school….there is literally something for everyone!

Whichever clubs you belong to, these are a great way to make new friends and to take part in something fun.

School Teams

Every Saturday morning Glyn School fields many sports teams. The range of sporting activities in which you can participate at Glyn School is truly impressive. In recent terms we have sent our students to represent the school in track and field events, cricket, golf, rugby, badminton, basketball, swimming and of course, in football.

Many year groups have more than one team out representing the school on a Saturday, so you have a great chance to play for the school. Further information regarding football and rugby trials, new sports clubs and opportunities that are available to students will be given to students, Parents and Carers via our weekly school newsletter.

All sporting teams have regular practices after school and these can be found on the Extracurricular Timetable which is published at the start of each year.
