Welcome to University Academy Keighley! We would normally have welcomed you face to face for transition days, visited our new students at their primary schools and held a welcome evening for students and families. However we are living in a challenging time at the moment and are adjusting to keep our community as safe as possible.
You will have received a letter from the Head, Mr Skurr, by now and our pastoral and safeguarding team have spoken to all primary schools about each student individually. You will also receive a welcome pack in the post with forms for parents/ carers to complete and return to us. We will be sharing videos each week from Monday 22nd June introducing you to the UAK community and will be working with primary schools to hold virtual tours and welcome meetings over the coming weeks. We understand some students are isolating or staying at home and if this is the case and you would like an individual meeting or tour – via Zoom or by phone – please contact Mrs Majid.
We know that coming to secondary school is exciting and can be daunting for some people too; we encourage you to talk to your son/ daughter about how they are feeling, what might be worrying them and what they are looking forward to. Please do get in touch with us to share your queries or concerns. There are different ways to do this – you can call the academy on: 01535 210333 and ask to speak to Mrs Majid (Head of Year 7), Mrs Leggett (Lead Head of Year) or Mrs Petrik-Davies (Assistant Principal & DSL). You are also welcome to email any of us:
Mrs Majid: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Leggett: email@example.com
