Batley Girls’ High School has just signed up to a new communication system to significantly improve the communication between school and home. This service is provided by Groupcall. Though the system can still use SMS (text) messages, we also now have an app available. Please visit the site below for all the information you’ll need to get up and running. It tells you how to download the app how to get registered, and also provides any other information you may need.
