The Good Shepherd Trust is a multi-academy trust serving 19 schools within the Diocese of Guildford across Surrey and Hampshire.

Our trust comprises both primary and secondary schools, schools affiliated to the Church of England and others who are not.  Our purpose is to grow and maintain a strong network of schools within a highly supportive and sharing network: we know that schools are better when they work together sharing common values and goals.

Opportunities for staff development are a key priority for us - as a trainee teacher you will have access to wide and varied professional development within your placement school.

But at the heart of what we do are the children and young people within our schools. GST schools are first and foremost highly inclusive settings where we strive to see each child flourish and grow, transforming lives and offering breadth and richness in each school’s individual curriculum. We also seek to fulfil the Church of England’s vision for education by providing schools for the entire community we serve, for people of all faiths and none.

We are currently offering Primary 3-7 and Primary 5-11 training courses with Inspiring Future Teachers. The courses in our schools can be applied for via the GLF Schools Teacher Training Apply system but placements will be within the Good Shepherd Trust schools partnership.
