BST is a community-led multi-academy trust focused on schools in urban Reading. Our emblem is a grapevine – rooted, flourishing and fruitful – and our philosophy is of ‘growth with care’. Our vision is of a family of good and outstanding local schools that share our wish for children and staff to be confident, independent, empowered, flourishing, relational, rooted and grounded.
All three of our member primary schools – St John’s CE Primary, New Town Primary and New Christ Church Primary – are seeking additional school governors from the local community to help ensure they are offering children the best start to their education. We aim to reflect the diversity of our community by welcoming children, families, staff, governors and trustees of all cultures, all faiths or none.
