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.

Aureus Primary School is part of the GLF multi academy trust.  The Trust Board have overall responsibility for the school.  They have delegated to the SSB the responsibility to implement and review the school’s strategic plan.
