Welcome to Our Trust

Welcome to The Good Shepherd Catholic Trust

Our Catholic Multi-Academy Trust consists of six primary academies and one secondary academy which are located across Barking, Dagenham and Redbridge. Our vision is the provision and development of a world class community of schools, providing the highest possible care, support, opportunities and outcomes for every child. Pupils are cherished for who they are, as much as for what they achieve and all achievements are celebrated. The Trustees will work closely with schools, their governors, staff, parents and the local community to develop together the successful citizens of our future. We hope this website will provide an insight in to the work our trust is doing as well as the individual schools, each of which is unique, that work together to provide an outstanding education.

    “The staff and pupils at St Joseph’s will work with the colleagues in each of the Good Shepherd Catholic Trust schools to enhance the education and faith development of our pupils. We appreciated the opportunity to start our academic year with a joint Mass in September so our teachers and governors could celebrate the start of a new year and an exciting new partnership.”
