We are Roundhay


“We are Responsible.
We are Resilient.
We are Ready to Learn.
We are Roundhay.

These are Roundhay’s values and ones that we want our pupils to live by, both inside and outside school. They embody our belief that all pupils have a responsibility for themselves and others, and should always be kind, polite and well-mannered. Our values encourage us not to let anything stand in the way of achieving what we are capable of, to be determined to succeed, and to accept that mistakes are an important part of learning. We want pupils to work hard, challenge themselves to keep improving, and understand that they are responsible for their personal and academic success.

We are proud of our examination success. Our 2019 Progress 8 score of + 0.51 placed us in the top 12% of schools nationally, and our results have remained consistently above national averages since. Our pupils raise hundreds of pounds for charity annually, involving themselves in the local community and participating in many extracurricular events and activities throughout the school year.

Roundhay School is a member of the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance, a partnership of Yorkshire schools that have come together to share skills and experience, so we can help improve the learning and achievement of young people together. When we invited Red Kite reviewers to Roundhay, they commented:

“There is an absolute belief that the school can remove real and potential barriers to a pupil’s learning experience for the better. The clarity and intent that surrounds the school’s working ethos and vision for all its pupils is of an outstanding quality. It is the manifestation of well-established and strongly embedded working approaches built over the years. It is real, tangible and impressive.”

In 2022, Roundhay was awarded ‘World Class’ status again, which we are exceptionally proud of. This organisation, World Class Schools, awards a quality mark to non-selective state schools that offer the best education in the UK, and there will only ever be one hundred schools in the country that hold this award. One of the unique features of the ‘World Class Schools’ Quality Mark assessment’s descriptors is that they apply to the pupils, not the school. They state:

“It is the calibre of the student which proves the calibre of the school. If the school is truly ‘World Class’, then the pupils will be able to own and demonstrate ‘World Class’ qualities.”

Roundhay is ‘World Class’ because of the work we do together. Parents, pupils, staff and everyone connected with Roundhay all play their part in making this school what it is – put simply, ‘We are Roundhay’.
