Welcome to Roundhay School

IMG_9557.JPGMay I wish everyone all the very best as we look forward to a very exciting 2016.   We hope you will gain a sense, from our website of what makes Roundhay such a lively and successful community to learn in! Ofsted judged us to be ‘ Outstanding’ in all categories, stating  ‘Roundhay is all about its students’ and this underlines that all staff want every child to be the best they can be. To read the full report, click here.

We are proud to be the most popular school in Leeds, particularly as we are one of the first all – through schools in the country, educating pupils aged from 4 to 18, with the largest Sixth Form in the city with over 450 students. Click here for a more detailed look at the attainment and progress of our pupils.

We have exciting plans to develop our Primary phase as well as our facilities on the Secondary Campus. This includes a major new building, dining centre extension, car parking and all- weather pitch through a major investment in partnership with Leeds City Council.  We are also pleased to be a founding strategic partner of the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance which is a collaboration between a large number of schools spanning four local authorities with aim of supporting all facets of school improvement. 

On a personal note I feel very fortunate to have been a very small part of ‘team Roundhay’ for nearly 20 years with ‘ the unanimous support of staff …to enable pupils to be the best they can be’ (Ofsted). This has allowed myself and other colleagues to develop Roundhay, as well as working further afield to spread good practice and learn from others in supporting general school improvement. I have been truly humbled and overwhelmed by the kind comments and messages of congratulations following the announcement that I have been commended as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to education in the Queen’s New Year 2016 Honours List. I feel extremely fortunate to have been nominated and know that, without the support of the Roundhay community of past and current students, colleagues, parents, governors and my family, it would never have happened.  

Thank you again.

Neil Clephan

Best wishes
