All schools in the Trust are now closed until further notice. Presently, we are able to provide supervision to children whose parents or carers' jobs are essential - in the fight against COVID-19 - and should only be used as a last resort.

Each of our schools is offering a very limited childcare service for a very small number of children, starting tomorrow. Schools have closed, they’re being used for children of key workers - who have no one else to support them as they work. https://t.co/IcKYkOjlXK

Plenty in this blog post for church leaders that resonates for others, such as school and trust leaders. “But we are facing weeks if not months of new reality, and we shall have many days where we have unexpected space to think, pray, read, re-imagine and discuss. Take it.”... https://t.co/4Al0qsyZrj

Postponed - Our young scientists head for university finals

Lab coats and microscopes will be at the ready for our young science enthusiasts as they head to university for the finals of a tough contest.

 

The orginal date of March 30 has now been postponed and we hope to set a new date in due course.

 

More than 40 primary and secondary schools from the GLF family exhibit amazing science projects they completed at home.

 

The event will also welcome businesses and organisations involved in STEM subjects; Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Students will have the chance to take part in a variety of activities designed to encourage their enthusiasm for the subjects.

 

“We are so pleased that the number of participating students continues to grow for the science fair. This year, our fourth, will be the biggest yet and we are all looking forward to seeing the huge variety of projects being exhibited.

 

“Students must take a great deal of credit because all the work is done outside of school, in their own time and on their own initiative and the competition is really hard,” said Daniel Welch, Primary Science Leader at GLF Schools.

 

A keynote speaker this year will be the university’s Dr Andrew Casey who proved to be a huge hit last year with his fire and ice demonstrations and discussion.

 

Each participating school holds its own science fair and the winner from each will head to the London university for the grand final.

 

“We continue to be amazed by the high standard of the projects and all the students have obviously worked very hard to be at the final. The complexity of the projects gets harder each year and we are always so impressed with each and every entry,” added Mr Welch.

 

“Inspiring and encouraging young people to have a life-long love of STEM subjects is at the heart of what we do. There are so many wonderful career options open to them with these subjects, and if their projects are anything to go by we will have some future names to watch,” he added.

 

Projects taking the honours in recent years have included a study of  tooth decay, how to make gases at home and the chemical composition of coffee.
