Welcome to

Batley Multi Academy Trust

The Trust at the heart of the Batley community

Welcome back

Welcome back to the new academic year. It has been a busy summer in Batley with a wide range of charity events taking place including the brilliant Jo Cox Way where cyclists travelled from Spen Valley to London and brought communities together along the route. Our Trust schools also achieved an award from the University of Leeds for our work on the Keepin' It Real research project. 


Our family of schools has seen our young people secure excellent SATs, GCSE and A level results this summer. Well done to all of our young people who worked so hard during the challenges of the pandemic; never before have young people faced such turbulent times. The commitment, determination and resilience our young people have demonstrated is tremendous and we are so proud of them all. We wish them every success in the next phase of their education journey and they will always be part of the Batley family.


We welcome all of the new young people joining our Trust schools; our primary schools, our secondary schools, those transitioning from Year 6 to Year 7, and those joining BG6 College, our sixth form. We are thrilled you have chosen our schools and we won't let you down. You are on an exciting learning journey and we are with you all the way. Our schools had a record number of first choice applications for places this year, and we thank parents/carers for choosing us as the right school for your child. 


We also welcome Manorfield Infant and Nursery School to our Trust, as well as all of our new colleagues joining our family of schools. Mr Simon Riley is now the interim Executive Headteacher at Batley Girls' High School, and Mr Aman Kang is the new Headteacher at Upper Batley High School. We look forward to an exciting year ahead!
