KBGS RELOCATES

History Society member Colin Kirkham has recently donated some copies of The Keighlian school magazine from the 1960s. This was the school magazine of Keighley Boys’ Grammar School. One edition donated by Colin covers the school’s transition from its location on North Street to a purpose-built site at Oakbank. This edition from the summer of 1964 included several photos taken or supplied by William Speight which compared the old and new schools. These are those photographs showing the school building, the assembly hall, the workshops and the corridors. Our thanks to Colin for his generosity.
