A BOYS’ school in Batley has been rated ‘good’ in all areas by education chiefs.
Ofsted inspectors commended Upper Batley High School on its leadership and management; teaching, learning and management; personal development, behaviour and welfare; and outcomes for pupils.
The Ofsted report said that “all pupils are provided with a range of tasks that stretch and challenge them according to their abilities” and “teachers have strong subject knowledge”.
It went on to say that “pupils’ attendance is above the national average” and “pupils are self-disciplined and routinely meet the high expectations of leaders and staff”.
The school on Blenheim Drive is for boys aged 11 to 16.
Headteacher Sam Vickers said: “We have worked incredibly hard over the past few years to transform our school and make it the school of choice for high-achieving boys in Kirklees.
“This report is testament to that and we are incredibly proud of our highly skilled, expert staff team, the brilliant parents and community, and most importantly our fantastic boys.
“We have very high expectations of everyone within our learning community and we provide the very best education, care, guidance and support for all the young people in our care.
“Ofsted observed every aspect of our school life and were very impressed by all that we offer for our boys, and all that they successfully achieve as a result of the high quality education they receive.”
