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.

Admissions Reception 2025-26

Information on the admissions process is on the Croydon Council website.


Consultation: Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24

We have consulted on our Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24. This consultation commenced at 9am Thursday 11 November 2021 and closed at 5pm on Saturday 8 January 2021. 

The key changes to our admissions arrangements are:

  1. The removal of the ‘social/medical’ oversubscription criteria as our school aspire support any child whatever their needs.

This consultation took place in accordance with the requirements as set out in the School Admissions Code (here). The consultation took place for six weeks as it is good practice that this six-week period excludes school holidays.

The GLF Trust Board is the Admissions Authority for our School. It reviewed all responses to the consultation prior to agreeing the final Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24. These  are published as part of the document available at the bottom of this webpage.
