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 beliefin giving every child the opportunity to be the ‘ best they can be’ in whatever they do.

Certainly we have much planned in and outside the classroom for this half term with the Sixth Form Geography field trip to Morocco, the Amp Awards held at the Leeds 02 Academy Music, ‘Come and see what we are learning events’ at the Primary campus, Parents' evenings, coffee mornings and our school musical, ‘Grease,’ which  sold out it in a matter of days, at the Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds!

We have exciting plans for  the rest of the  year 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.’

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

Best wishes  

Neil Clephan (Headteacher)
