Welcome from Sarah Billinge,
Whether or not you have studied at Roundhay before you will find our Sixth Form to be diverse, friendly and welcoming. Each year more and more students join us from other schools and we always make a real effort to ensure that all our students quickly settle into life in the Sixth Form. We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of our largest ever Year 12 entry and have once again updated our curriculum to ensure that you will have the chance to follow the programme of study which is best suited to your needs and aspirations.
Our Sixth Form provision was graded as 'Outstanding' in our last Ofsted inspection and we are justifiably proud of the educational experience we offer to our students.
I can assure you that your transition from Year 11 will be well supported and our outstanding teaching and learning will provide you with every opportunity to successfully progress into Higher Education, employment or further training. We are committed to ensuring the success of all our students and our priority is to make sure that all our Sixth Formers progress from school into the futures of their choice.
At Roundhay we have high expectations of our students and are naturally ambitious for them. I am extremely proud of our academic record and the fact that the overwhelming majority of our Sixth Form students successfully progress to university. We clearly want you to succeed and our outstanding team of teachers, tutors and mentors will ensure you are well supported as you take on the new challenges of Sixth Form study.
I very much look forward to meeting you in September.
Assistant Headteacher, Raising Standards and Achievement KS5
