Here's to an exciting 2018-19 at UBHS
We hope you have all enjoyed a great summer break and lots of quality family time together. It has been an exciting break at UBHS where the hard work at our school never ceases, as you know. We have had summer school, soccer school, the Words not Deeds theatre production, to name just a few of the fun summer activities our boys have taken part in. All have gone exceedingly well.
We have also had some building work undertaken. Our S corridor and Business Studies department has been refurbished and is now a bright and airy, one way system. The boys toilets have been refurbished and look fantastic. We also have a new security gate at the front of school to help safeguard our school community and the school has been fully painted. The school is looking fantastic and we welcome several new members of staff to our highly skilled, expert staff team, and we welcome our new catering manager, Michael, who started last week.
We also offer a very warm welcome to all our new year 7 learners and we can't wait to meet you all as you start your journey with Upper Batley High School. You have an exciting time ahead of you, packed with hard work and high achievement.
Our motto is always Believe, Achieve and you will Succeed. Respect lies at the heart of everything we do and we are passionate about being better than brilliant in Batley.
Our 2018 exam results were again hugely successful with the highest ever number of 7,8 and 9 grades (the highest grades children can achieve in their GCSEs). Read more about our results on our website and in our PRIDE magazine. We are immensely proud of our year 11 learners and we wish them every success as they go on to further education, employment or training.
