This is Batley. Beds, Biscuits and Brilliant Education for Boys.

Welcome back and we hope you enjoyed some quality family time over the half term break. This week sees a whole host of developments in school with further site developments (our new Creative's Department is almost complete, and our exciting new Careers Library will be in place shortly). We are also building the cultural capital for our learners with an overseas trip to Pakistan where our boys are teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and I was extremely fortunate to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. In addition, a group of our year 10 boys have taken part in a community debate and we look forward to seeing the next steps of their work in this key local initiative. Well done to Mr Rodwell.   

The national data has been released and shows how well Upper Batley High School performs compared to boys around the country. Well done to all our staff and learners. We are the school of choice for high achieving boys.
