Welcome to Roundhay School

Welcome to our website! We hope you will gain a real flavour of what makes Roundhay such a wonderful place to learn. We are proud to be one of the first all-through schools educating pupils from 4 to 18 and were delighted to be judged ‘ Outstanding’ by Ofsted in all categories. They stated that ‘ Roundhay was all about its students’ where ‘ the core values of courtesy, cooperation and commitment permeate every aspect of the school  ...’ To read the full report, click here.

This reflects the hard work of everyone in our school community, who work together to ensure our students can be the best they can be. Our brand new Roundhay School Magazine  (Issue 2 available now!) should give you an insight into school life, highlighting the excellent staff and pupil camaraderie that underpins our success. 

The last academic year saw excellent exam results, both in the Sixth Form and Year 11; over 70% of students gained 5 or more GCSE passes at A*-C, including English and Mathematics, and the vast majority of our Year 13 students progressed successfully to university, college, apprenticeships, employment and GAP years. Click here for a more detailed look at the attainment and progress of our pupils.

The icing on the cake was to be placed in the top 3% of schools when we gained the industry standard Investors in People Gold Award. To find out more, click here.

I feel incredibly fortunate to have been a small part of ‘team Roundhay’ for nearly 20 years; together, we are constantly striving to repay the faith parents have shown in us by making us the most popular school in Leeds for over 15 years.

If you would like to see us in action, why not visit on our community  Open Morning on  Saturday October 3rd 2015. Click here to find out more about our Open Events.You are sure of a warm welcome from all of us and we look forward to seeing you. 

Best wishes
