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.

The majority of the trips that children experience throughout their journey from Nursery to Year 6 are linked with their curriculum learning. Having adopted the new GLF curriculum this year, some trip venues have been new, though the intention is that these will broadly stay the same year on year.


Additional trips are organised where it is deemed a great opportunity for children to build their Cultural Capital and forge links with the local community, like the annual local remembrance day services at Bourne Hall, the opportunity to run in the 2024 London Mini Marathon or the recent Eco ambassador trip to plant trees in the newly formed local nature reserve by the Hogsmill river.


We aim for each child to experience at least 3 trips or visits each academic year, with one of those being a trip out of school and two of those being workshops within school. Where external trips are planned, the process is overseen by our Educational Visits Coordinator, Miss Thorne who has undertaken the relevant Surrey County Council training. 


Costs are kept to a minimum, with no trips intended to make a profit. Consideration for the current economic climate is always taken into account, with those in receipt of certain benefits able to apply for a subsidy to ensure that all children have the opportunity to attend. For example when undertaking the Bikeability training, PP children can pay a reduced rate of £4 instead of £15.


This year the annual trips and visits costs for each year group has not exceeded £50, excluding those attending the residential trips in Years 4 and 6.


Our capacity to develop children’s swimming capabilities has once again expanded this year. Where Years 5 and 6 children benefited in 2021/22, in 2022 we allowed Year 4 children to participate in swimming lessons, and this year we have also widened that provision to include Year 3 children. 

We rely heavily on parent volunteers to help us with this and other trips. Where possible, DBS checked adults are utilised and given a clear and comprehensive guidance sheet detailing their responsibilities, before each excursion. 


Finally, leaders make the decision for Year 4 & 6, in lieu of costs associated with bikeability, swimming and their residential trips, to only facilitate internal visits. Where children cannot attend a residential trip their week is filled with a variety of additional cultural capital building activities, both in school and within the local area.
