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.

GLF Schools Named as New Teaching School Hub for West Sussex


We are excited to announce that GLF Schools has been named as the Teaching School Hub for West Sussex. We are very much looking forward to working with other education training providers, schools, teachers and other stakeholders to provide high quality professional development to teachers at every stage of their careers. We are keen to develop a collaborative network that shares excellent practice, supporting schools and trusts as they continue to invest in and develop their workforce. By creating and retaining the very best teachers and associate staff, the network can work together to ensure long term positive outcomes for children.

Teaching school hubs will be school-led centres of excellence for teacher and leadership training and development. In announcing the new status, the Department for Education has said that the hubs will “provide high-quality professional development to teachers and leaders at all stages of their career and play a key role in helping to build up trainee teachers as they enter the workforce. This will further level up the quality of teaching, allowing every child to receive a world-class start in life no matter where they are born.”

Jon Chaloner, GLF’s Chief Executive, said “We’re delighted to have been awarded Teaching School Hub status and we look forward to working alongside our colleagues in West Sussex’s schools and local authority.”
