In Biology we have replaced chicks with cress seeds. Year 7 have designed suitable environments to germinate and grow the best cress. Each class has a week to look after their environments and see who can grow the tallest. https://t.co/HP7EoIhb6o

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.  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 and students of both schools.

Armed with that simple philosophy, we began our ‘journey’ — a journey that would help us become a MAT of more than 700 talented staff working with over 5000 children in over 20 schools across 5 counties in southern England.
