GLF Schools

GLF is still welcoming applications. During this period it is our intention to continue with critical recruitment for key roles starting in September 2020. However, in line with Government guidance we have taken required actions to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all involved. This is always a priority for us and for this reason we are holding all selection processes remotely via video conferencing or telephone. All applicants will be treated in the same way to ensure equality and that no individual is disadvantaged. Thank you for your cooperation.

We continuously invest heavily in developing our colleagues who work in our schools. First-class schools have excellent staff with exceptional leadership teams. We believe in the continuous professional development of our staff across each and every level of the Trust.

Schools are complex communities. They are not a business, we do not have clients or customers nor a product, we have people. People with all their ups and downs, their hopes and fears, their bad days and good days. Together, if we invest in our colleagues we believe that we can make a truly positive difference to every child and student in our schools.

Jon Chaloner CEO

OUR Story

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Having worked in partnership since October 2010, both schools’ governing bodies and leadership teams believed that, as like-minded partners, working in different sectors gave incredible opportunities to the children, students and colleagues of both schools. Armed with that simple philosophy, we began our ‘journey’ — a journey that would help us become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Joining GLF schools brings a wealth of opportunity both personally and professionally.  Each school in our trust has its own individual identity, while benefiting from the expertise that comes from a dedicated and experienced support team.  GLF Schools will recognise your skills, encourage creativity and provide opportunities for you to grow, learn and flourish. As a member of staff you can expect GLF to invest in your career progression, provide a bespoke career development plan and offer the potential to be fast tracked into leadership.
