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.

What our students think about Business Studies



Our intent is to equip and upskill students with Business life skills so they can progress further with their studies with the Cambridge National and beyond, but to ensure they are employment ready. ​Through the study of Buisess students should be able to challenge themselves from a Business perspective and achieve no matter what level they wish to progress to in a career.​


Through their time at MHs we encourage students to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world and Ensure that students become digitally literate at a level suitable for the future workplace as active, aware and informed participants in the digital world.​
