Upper Batley High school hosted their annual Presentation Evening on 23th November 2017. Guests of honour included, Gerald Hey, Chief Executive C&K Careers, Adrian Bird The Apprenticeship Finder, Callum Parkinson from Cummins. Parents and carers thoroughly enjoyed an entertaining evening where the achievements of Year 7 to 11 learners were celebrated. The local community showed their support for the event by providing prizes which certainly added an extra sense of grandeur to the proceedings.
Parents, governors, distinguished guests, staff and learners were left speechless as the evening closed with a wonderful performance by the school choir and drummers. Their teacher Mr Sam Rodwell said, “It has been a real pleasure helping the boys practice for this performance. Their dedication, enthusiasm has surpassed all my expectations and I am looking forward to next year already”.
Mr Hazelwood, the Master of Ceremonies thanked all parents, governors, staff and learners for all their hard work in making the evening such a success. The achievements of learners at the school continue to improve year upon year as recognised by Ofsted, who reported the school as, ‘a harmonious community in which to learn’.
Upper Batley High School continues to raise the aspirations of learners in the local community, and is now the school of choice for high achieving boys in Kirklees.
