Welcome to our school website! Good Shepherd is a Catholic School and operates under the trust deed of the Archdiocese of Birmingham and is a part of the Romero Catholic Academy.
Good Shepherd prides itself on being a welcoming and inclusive Catholic school which follows a strong moral code rooted in the gospel and the teachings of the Catholic Church. The school promotes that everyone is equal but unique in the eyes of God and that all should use their God-given gifts and talents fully. We promote a common sense of belonging, showing children how different communities can be united by common experiences and values.
The school provides a well balanced curriculum giving all pupils the opportunity to develop their own personal skills and grow in confidence. Good Shepherd has an excellent reputation for its sporting achievements and strives to provide all children with the opportunity to take part in extracurricular activities.
We welcome you to our school and hope that you will enjoy being part of our school community and family.
The school makes every effort to keep parents informed about activities and events which take place within the school.
To this end a School Newsletter is published on a weekly basis which is distributed each Friday and is available online or via Twitter.
Wherever possible all information will be printed in the Newsletter, however letters which require the return of a signed authorisation will be sent separately.
