Sixth Form College

Leaving a legacy

Setting the stage for public speaking


One of our amazing Year 12 students won the regional heat of The Great Debate, which was hosted here at Batley Girls’ High School, one of only two schools in Yorkshire to be selected as a venue.


Young people from across our family of Trust schools came to compete, and spoke for five minutes about people and places they’d researched, that were of local historical significance. Our winner spoke about Batley Variety Club and was chosen by an independent panel of University academics from Leeds Beckett, Newcastle, Bradford and Huddersfield. She will go on to take part in the National Final - watch this space!


Student-led fundraising


Some of our students recently organised a colour theme day to raise money for their chosen charities; Save the Children and Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) to support the humanitarian crisis.

Our Year 13 BG6 Student Leadership Team also served refreshments at open evening and asked for voluntary donations for these charities. In total over £310 was raised, which is absolutely brilliant, and those students who supported the open evening were truly excellent ambassadors.
