The Glyn Learning Foundation


“The leadership team is ambitious and has high expectations for staff and pupils. Staff morale is high and leaders have established an ethos of strong teamwork. They have acted decisively to tackle weaknesses by implementing a planned programme of actions. Significant staff restructuring, a rigorous monitoring cycle of teaching and learning, and external support have already made an impact on improving the quality of teaching and on raising pupils’ achievement.” Danetree Ofsted 2012



We wish to work with like-minded schools that share the GLF’s desire to secure the best possible outcomes for children and students. Originally a single secondary academy, we are aware that successful outcomes in the primary sector are the best platform for subsequent success in the secondary sector.

Prospective GLF academies and partner schools must be committed to working alongside each other striving for school improvement across all schools. Our track record shows that Glyn and Danetree have both changed and improved over the last two years. Our four ‘both schools’ staff conferences have been integral to the schools’ successes and the next one on 8 March 2013 will include Cuddington Croft Primary School colleagues and governors.

The GLF is willing to sponsor underperforming schools that require significant improvement and was granted sponsor status by the Office of the Schools’ Commissioner in early 2012. We are willing to discuss membership with schools aiming to move from satisfactory/requires improvement to good and from good to outstanding. In addition, we would like to work with outstanding and good schools that have the capacity to contribute to school improvement work under the auspices of the GLF.
