Our Trust is a family of schools with a central support team that believes deeply in the same things as you - that a child’s education is about more than just academic results - it’s about preparing them to live ‘Life in all its Fullness.’
At the Good Shepherd Trust we have a highly successful programme of transforming previously underperforming schools and maintaining ‘Good’/’Outstanding’ schools. We have a 100% success record of leading our sponsored schools on their school improvement journey to achieve at least a 'Good' outcome at their next Ofsted inspection.
As a Trust we continue to recruit, train and retain great teachers, leaders and support staff throughout their careers by providing highly effective staff development including through National Professional Qualifications.
Staff wellbeing is prioritised across the Good Shepherd Trust by using innovative approaches to reducing workload and improving collaboration.
Our reputation as a strong Trust is further enhanced by providing high quality services in school improvement and financial management to schools across Cumbria.
