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.

Teacher Training

We believe that the best place for trainee teachers to learn how to become excellent classroom practitioners is in schools.  We offer Initial Teacher Training (ITT) through a variety of routes where trainees spend the majority of their time in a school environment, whilst receiving high quality support and training.

Learning in this way means that trainees feel part of the school community in which they train.  It allows schools to grow their own and offer successful candidates a long-term career pathway that goes well beyond Initial Teacher Training.

GLF Schools' SCITT is an alliance of highly successful schools in Surrey and beyond, led by Glyn School, a National Teaching School, Ofsted rated Outstanding and an Accredited Provider for Initial Teacher Training.  We have a very strong history of providing exceptional ITT since 2013, with a 100% employment rate, 86% of which is in our own partnership of schools.  We are passionate about the quality of our training and the size of our cohort allows us to know our trainees individually.
