Yorkshire Champions

Reading is such an important key life skill. Across our family of schools we promote the value and importance of reading whenever we possibly can. Reading helps to improve our vocabulary, teaches us about people, places and the whole world around us. Reading is also a great way to relax and unwind; after all you are never alone when you have a good book.


Whilst we have been unable to travel during the pandemic, reading has been a great way to discover other countries and cultures. We have a community library on the Upper Batley High School site where everyone is welcome to pop in and choose a book - there really is something for everyone.


We are also very proud of our Upper Batley High School learners who won the Yorkshire competition for the National Reading Champions Quiz. The regional heat of this national competition involved eight rounds, all with varied and challenging themes. These brilliant Year 8 and 9 learners will now take part in the final in London, in May. Well done team UBHS and good luck for the final!
