About Batley Multi Academy Trust
Batley Girls’ High School established Batley Multi Academy Trust in September 2015.
Batley Multi Academy Trust’s sole purpose is to provide an outstanding education through our family of schools.
The Trust is passionately committed to the communities of Batley and Dewsbury, serving our local learners and their families in order to secure excellent educational outcomes, partnered with high aspirations.
We know that every learner, with their different talents, skills and ambitions, has the potential to excel, which is vital in developing local wealth and enabling our community to contribute successfully to society as a whole. Respect lies at the heart of all we do and is key to becoming a successful young adult, ready to face the opportunities and challenges of today’s world. Respect for learning, respect for self and respect for others shape who we are, and we are particularly proud of our commitment to and celebration of community cohesion.
Batley Multi Academy Trust currently comprises Batley Girls’ High School and Upper Batley High School, providing high quality education for both boys and girls of secondary age. This collaboration enables us to share expertise, knowledge and best practice to ensure academic and pastoral excellence throughout both of our schools – both schools sharing the same overall ethos and values, whilst maintaining their own unique character.
As we look to the future, we plan to expand the Trust to include local Primaries, to provide an outstanding education for all the children and young people of the area. In doing so, we will offer a fully integrated provision and a seamless educational experience across all ages and stages.
What is unique about our Multi Academy Trust
The word ‘Trust’ is both meaningful and powerful, as it describes the most important value of the organisation.
TRUST is when the cumulative knowledge and expertise of all partners is respected.
The TRUST is made up of a solution focused and creative body of leaders where genuine sharing of ideas is welcomed and valued.
A TRUST built out of true collaboration, where it is recognised that joint decisions, resulting from open and honest dialogue result in better decisions.
