Welcome to

Batley Multi Academy Trust

The Trust at the heart of the Batley community

Innovative Ideas

On Friday our Trust family of schools were thrilled to be asked to present their work at the West Yorkshire  Pol-Ed (Police-Education) Conference.


Kiara Azhar, a teacher from Batley Grammar School, has been influential in the production of the learning resources and she received a special commendation on stage at the high profile event. Sam Rodwell, the Head of More in Common (PSHCE) at Upper Batley High School, also spoke about why he felt Pol-Ed was so important for our young people and outlined its significance in the school curriculum, as part of the approach to holistic education. Two of our Upper Batley learners also spoke and were absolutely wonderful ambassadors for their school, our Trust and their local community. We were incredibly proud of how well they spoke in front of a huge, high profile audience at the magnificent Headingley stadium.


Across our Trust family of schools we recognise that community makes us and strong relationships with our communities is essential, which is why all our schools are at the heart of their local community, with Batley itself sitting right at the heart of West Yorkshire.


Congratulations to everyone involved in this wonderful curriculum enrichment project. We all really do have far more in common than that which divides us.
