At Good Shepherd we have a strong Catholic ethos. The school was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.
We are part of the Romero Partnership – a network of schools that stems around the primary schools of Corpus Christi, Good Shepherd, Sacred Heart, SS Peter and Paul, St Gregory, St John Fisher, St Patrick and the Secondary partnered school of Cardinal Wiseman.
We work together for the common good. The aim for all our schools to be outstanding and providing the very best Catholic education for the children in our care from 3 – 19 years of age. By working smarter together, we share and grow ideas, pool resources and access the very best in all our schools.
