Welcome to

Batley Multi Academy Trust

The Trust at the heart of the Batley community

Love to Learn

We have held some fabulous, immersive learning experiences recently across our Trust family of schools. The Trust-wide careers event - Trust Us, held at Batley Town Hall, was a big hit with our young people, our staff and our community, and made front page news in the local press.

Careers education is a core part of our work to raise aspirations, and ensuring everyone can be the very best version of themselves. It is also hugely important to us that we set young people up well with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their next steps of education, employment or training, so they can pursue the career of their choice. As Confucius once said; "choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life".  


A crucial part of being ready for further education, or ready for the world of work, is being highly skilled in literacy - reading, writing and oracy - and our Trust family of schools celebrated World Book Day in style. Developing a love of learning often starts with a love of reading. Reading not only teaches us about other experiences, it is also how we can all deepen and enrich our vocabulary. Anyone who says they don't like reading, just hasn't found the right book yet! 


Batley Girls' High School linked literacy to a creative challenge and young people decorated their classroom doors in the theme of their chosen book. The door displays look amazing! What better way to get our learners engaged with reading, and to have a lasting display of the relevance, importance and significance of a book. Absolutely brilliant!


And, do remember, at Upper Batley High School there is a community library for anyone to come along and take a book, relax and enjoy! You are never alone when you have a good book.
