Batley Girls’

Sixth Form College

New year, new team

It has been a great pleasure to join the BG6 community over the last two weeks and to see the aspiration in our Year 12 and Year 13 cohorts as we continue to fulfil our school vision of Excellence for All.


I would like to outline some of the key opportunities and processes that have been added to the BG6 College offer to prepare your child for excellence in her examinations, and to secure your child's first choice post-18 destination; be this university, an apprenticeship, a degree apprenticeship, or employment.


College Structure:

We have increased capacity and the structure of the College Team to deliver a truly world class post-16 learning experience with the highest quality academic, pastoral and holistic care for. The team now comprises of:
