Upper Batley High School welcomed colleagues new to the profession for training last week. It was a great day to meet lots of new teachers, and our very own Mr Parkin, Ms Coates and Mrs Kola delivered high quality professional development throughout the day. UBHS is part of the Calderdale & Kirklees Teaching Hub where we deliver high quality teacher and leadership training to teachers across our area.
At UBHS we value our staff enormously. We are very fortunate to have such a highly skilled, and highly talented team of expert practitioners where everyone does their very best each and every day for our young people. Our learners deserve that, and all the research shows that the factor that makes the biggest impact on young people's progress is their teacher, so only the best will do. We thank all our staff for their hard work and dedication each and every day. Our young people achieve excellent GCSE outcomes, and they also receive the very best pastoral care, guidance and support. That is one of the reasons why UBHS recently achieved the Gold Award for Mental Health & Wellbeing. Well done to all our staff and our learners.
