‘Join our Journey to Amazing’
University Academy Keighley (UAK)
UAK is situated just 10 miles from Bradford city centre and is easily accessible by both car and public transport. We are experiencing times of change and are excited by what the future holds for all our staff, students and the community in which we serve. We are now officially graded as a ‘Good’ School. For the last three years we have obtained Progress 8 scores in line with national averages illustrating the significant potential for improvement. UAK is joining the ambitious and expanding Carlton Multi-Academy Trust later this year. The MAT has grown out of the success of Carlton Bolling College, a large Bradford secondary school. Carlton Bolling has been on a rapid improvement journey over recent years, which has seen the school progress from an Ofsted rating of Inadequate (Special Measures) to Outstanding in just under two years, and was recently awarded Secondary School of the Year at the Pearson Education Awards
