University Academy Keighley is a great place to be for learning, guidance and opportunity. We are a true community academy, sponsored by the University of Bradford and City of Bradford MDC, located at the gateway to the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
Our school ethos is very simple, “Aspire, Accomplish, Achieve”, and this is embedded in everything we do. We ensure each and every one of our students, regardless of ability and background, have high aspirations for themselves and realise that, with hard work and the correct guidance, they can achieve their dreams!
Students feel cared for and safe at UAK and are extremely proud of their school and the wonderful facilities in our new building.
As well as excellence in teaching and learning, we offer a wide range of opportunities to our young people, from playing sports, work experience, attending army camp, drama clubs, reading groups, which all contribute towards a well-rounded young person who is ready to take on new challenges after their time here.
It is a very exciting time for UAK as we partner with Carlton Bolling College, an ‘Outstanding’ school in the City of Bradford. Through this partnership we aim to make UAK an ‘Outstanding’ school by introducing more improvements in teaching and learning, which will directly benefit our students’ outcomes and we will keep parents/carers informed every step of the way through parents’ evenings, newsletters and on the academy website.
We hope you enjoy taking this journey with us to make University Academy Keighley a truly outstanding centre of learning.
