Upper Batley High School is the school of choice for high achieving boys in Kirklees.
The school achieved fantastic GCSE results with a record number of grades 8 and 9, the new highest GCSE grades possible. There was excellent performance in English Language, English Literature, Computing, Business Studies, Fine Art, Product Design, Photography, Geography, RE and our science department yet again achieved excellent results in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
The Maths and English new Standard ‘Basics’ score was 46% (scoring grade 4-9 in both Maths and English), and new Good ‘Basics’ score of 23% (scoring grade 5-9 in both Maths and English). Learners have risen to the challenge of the new and more difficult GCSEs superbly well, particularly in relation to their Key stage 2 starting points.
Success at this level relies on the culmination of hard work from our young people, the best academic and pastoral support from school – and amazing parenting.
In that respect, we are very fortunate to be part of strong community where our boys have such caring, supportive and loving families.
Upper Batley High School has a bespoke curriculum designed especially for boys’ and as well as high academic standards, the school has first class pastoral care. The Barnyard is where learning is taken outside the classroom and young people learn to care for small animals as well as develop their social skills and their entrepreneurial skills. The school is proud to have our very own Forest School which teaches young people how to be independent, how to problem solve, and which really develops their confidence, thinking skills, resilience and self esteem.
