Message from the CEO

I am delighted to introduce you to the website for GLF Schools which is a Multi-Academy Trust established in 2012.

We believe that every child in our schools can achieve the highest academic standards whilst enjoying a vibrant, challenging and rich curriculum. Whilst operating as a part of a family, each school exists in its own right maintaining its own unique characteristics and individual identity. Each of our 40 schools serves to meet the needs of its own local community yet all are united in their core purpose of providing an outstanding educational experience. When we say outstanding, we mean this in the traditional definition of the word synonymous with excellent or marvellous or magnificent or terrific or first-class or fine or wonderful or superb or exceptional.

It is over five years since the first school in the Trust became an academy; we believe that our experiences stand us in good stead for the future. We are led by our conviction that each and every child should experience opportunities no matter their background and no matter which school they attend.

We know that we must continue to invest heavily in developing our colleagues who work in our schools. First-class schools have excellent staff with exceptional leadership teams. The Trust has a proven track record of success and enjoys working with schools which are sponsored, brand new and those which have chosen to join us in the primary and secondary sectors. We believe in the 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, we believe that we can make a truly positive difference to every child and student in our schools.
