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.

History quote


We aim to give our students a strong understanding of past events, people, and change. This is done through the use of evidence and interpretations to draw conclusions and create judgements of their own.

Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

History K and S

5 year learning journey 



Studying history helps us understand and grapple with complex questions and dilemmas by examining how the past has shaped (and continues to shape) global, national, and local relationships between societies and people.

History careers


Within History we assess students' learning through knowledge checkpoint quizzes, challenge questions, prep, 5 a day, end of term assessments, exam questions and mock papers at GCSE. 


It is important that students receive regular feedback in order for them to continue to improve, meet and exceed their potential within history. Students receive feedback through our marking proformas in books, verbal feedback in lessons and end of term assessment feedback.
