Book of the month
A Sprinkle of Madness
Keighley Schools Together
A unique anthology that paired secondary school pupils from University Academy Keighley with young-writers from five primary schools: Abbey Park Academy, Merlin Top Primary Academy, Our Lady of Victories, St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School, and St. Joseph’s Primary Keighley. This is a rare mix of voices that explore the themes of growing up.
