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.

I was educated at Luton Sixth Form College. I have an MA from Oxford University in Biochemistry, did a year’s post graduate work at Harvard University as a Henry Fellow and then went into Consumer Marketing with Unilevre initially and then with Johnson and Johnson where I ended up as General Marketing Manager of the Uk Consumer business. After a total of 12 years in Marketing, I was made redundant and decided to take a career change into teaching. I was lucky to be offered a year’s teaching of Biology at Eton College (I couldn’t afford to become qualified so I had to enter the private sector). I then joined Wellington College where I taught Biology for 23 years. That included 6 years as Head of Biology and then 10 years as Director of Studies on the SMT. I retired in 2013.

During my time at Wellington, I was an ISI Inspector, helped to set up The Wellington Academy (for which I was a Governor for 7 years), helped to set up the first Wellington College International School in Tianjin, China and did all sorts of sports coaching. I am a Governor of Eagle House Prep School and have been for 12 years. My interests include my allotment, playing bridge, reading, travelling and am a member of Christchurch Wokingham.
