Welcome to Roundhay School

We are delighted that, as one of first all-through schools educating pupils from 4 to 18, we were judged in November 2013 to be OUTSTANDING in all categories when visited by Ofsted. The inspection team, including two of Her Majesty’s inspectors stated that: Roundhay School is all about its students,' where ' students make rapid progress and academic standards are high,’ and  ‘staff ensure that each one, regardless of background or ability, is given every opportunity to shine.’

To read the full report, click here.  

The OUTSTANDING judgement is a wonderful outcome reflecting the hard work day-in and day-out by ALL associate and teaching staff, with the support and healthy challenge of governors and parents. As one student reported, unprompted, to an inspector:

‘It is cool to want to learn at  Roundhay.

Whilst we never claim to get it right all the time, we are absolutely committed to trying to ensure all pupils are safe, happy and successful. The inspectors highlighted that ‘  the  core values of courtesy, cooperation and commitment permeate every aspect of the school … behaviour for learning is outstanding across the entire school.' These judgments underlined our belief in giving every child the opportunity to be the ‘ best they can be’ in all that they do.

As always, ‘there is no room for complacency anywhere in the school' and the summer holidays, as we wait for confirmation of our exam performance at GCSE and A Level, have been a busy and production period for our pupils and teaching and associate staffas Ofsted commented, the governors, staff and leaders of the school are  ‘ unrelenting in their pursuit of excellence.’

Thank you for your continued support as it really does make all the difference.

Best wishes  

Neil Clephan (Headteacher)
