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.

At Forge Wood, history is taught through projects which are designed to capture the children’s imagination and engage them in their journey as developing historians. The history learning evolves with the children as they progress through the school, challenging and encouraging them to improve their knowledge and skills to achieve an understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

The children explore a range of periods in time, develop their curiosity about the past and ask questions to understand the complexity of people’s past lives. History helps our children to develop a balanced perspective about the world around them and encourages them to aspire to take an active role in this world.
