Upper Batley High School is a dynamic, innovative and forward thinking learning community. We are proud that our focus is on educating ‘Tomorrow’s Successful Men’ and we are specialists in the education of boys. Respect lies at the heart of everything we do. We are looking for a forward thinking individual to join our specialist team. Our GCSE results increased again in 2020, demonstrating great progress for boys and a record number of learners achieving the highest possible grade 9. Ofsted visited us in March 2019 and said our school “provides all pupils with a high quality education”. Upper Batley High School were identified as a Beacon School in the Northern Challenge report due to the excellent progress our disadvantaged learners make. We also hold the PSHCE Charter Mark, the Careers Quality Standard and we are a lead school within the Kirklees Careers Hub. We are one of only a few schools in the UK to achieve 100% in all Gatsby benchmarks. Ofsted identified out careers programme as a “real strength of the school” and we are in the top 7% of all schools nationally. Our 11-16 school is multi-cultural and located close to the town centre, within easy access of the motorway network. Our work is focused on developing the unique potential of every individual whilst working towards becoming an outstanding educational organisation. We are a vibrant, rich and exciting learning community with unique and inspiring opportunities inside and outside the classroom.
We are part of the Batley Multi Academy Trust, whose sole purpose is to provide an outstanding education through our family of schools. Batley Multi Academy Trust currently comprises Batley Girls’ High School, Upper Batley High School, Batley Grammar School, Healey Junior, Infant and Nursery School and Field Lane Junior, Infant and Nursery School.
