Welcome to Roundhay School


Find out more about this brand new scheme to reward students for their extra contribution to school life here. 

We were 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.’

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 whatever they do.

We have exciting plans for  the rest of the  year in and out of the classroom and you can be assured  ‘there is no room for complacency anywhere in the school‘; as Ofsted commented, the governors, staff and leaders of the school are  ‘  unrelenting in their pursuit of excellence.’

We also gained the industry standard  Investors in People Gold Award this year. The report stated ‘ Roundhay is a team …everyone counts.’ That is certainly true of our parents and careers. Thank you for your continued support - it really does make  all the difference .  

Best wishes  

Neil Clephan (Headteacher)
