Welcome to Roundhay School

The (outstanding) Burden 04th March 2016%5b1%5d.jpgWe very much hope you will gain a real flavour, 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’; 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. We also have 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 the 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 across the region, including as  one of the first National Leaders of Education. As a result I feel incredibly lucky that my family could join me for the OBE investiture at Buckingham Palace where I was delighted to meet the Queen! I would like to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of congratulations I have received. I 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 as it is my privilege to have played a  small part in Roundhay’s development and success. 

Best wishes 

Neil Clephan OBE   (Headteacher)
