The Good Shepherd Trust is the Admissions Authority for all of its member academies.
The Trust covers a large geographical area, which encompasses the Diocese of Guildford, including Hampshire and Surrey Local Authorities.
The Trust Board annually produce and determine a 'common' Admissions Policy, which has some variation for each individual academy, in order to accommodate local circumstances.
The Trust delegates some operational admissions tasks to individual academies. These include the requirement for individual academies to undertake their own consultation on the policy and to run their own operational admissions processes, such as waiting lists. Academies are supported by the Trust central team as required.
The Local Authorities that we work within (Surrey and Hampshire), currently centrally co-ordinate the admissions processes for all of their schools, including academies. Therefore parents seeking a place for their child at any of our member academies should make an application to the relevant Local Authority.
