GLF Schools

Message from the CEO


I am delighted to welcome you to the website for GLF Schools, a Multi-Academy Trust established in 2012.


A collaborative and ambitious trust, we support 17,000 children and young people aged 2 to 19 in a diverse array of settings with around 2,500 employees. Our schools are in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex and the London Boroughs of Wandsworth and Croydon. Across our Trust, we are committed to our shared vision that each child must have the best possible start in life with varied opportunities to achieve the highest standards, whilst enjoying a vibrant, challenging and rich curriculum.


Each of our 42 schools serves to meet the needs of its own local community yet are united in their core purpose of providing an excellent educational experience. Founded in 2012, our purpose is simple: “We work together sharing experience, sharing resources and sharing support. Our schools are stronger by working together.” Meaningful collaboration within and outside our Trust is at the heart of our culture. Through working together rather than in isolation, GLF schools are best placed to secure and sustain their ongoing improvement, as exemplified over the last 10 years. 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.
