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.

Primary Teacher Training (3-7 & 5-11)

We offer the SCITT Core route for primary trainees.  This programme is self funded by the trainee.  

What is the cost of the course?

  • For primary fee funded trainees, the course fees are £8,000 in total for 'QTS only'.
  • If you decide to do the PGCE uplift, it is an extra £1,250 making the total course cost £9,250.

How can I pay the course tuition fees?

Options include –

  • Self-finance: you can fund the tuition fees through private finance. 
  • Tuition fee loan: you can apply to Student Finance England (SFE) for a loan to cover your SCITT course fees.   You will need to meet the eligibility requirements for the loan, which are explained on the website https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies
  • Maintenance loans: You may also be eligible for a maintenance loan to help with your living expenses.  These are separate to tuition fee loans and are paid in 3 equal instalments, usually at the beginning of each term.  Further information can be found here.  Applications are made directly via SFE; maintenance loans are paid directly to the trainee.  
  • You may also be eligible for additional support via Student Finance.  

Currently, there is no government funding to support the salaried primary route for 2023/24 and therefore, we are unable to offer the School Direct route for primary applicants.  .
