  Why Choose Roundhay Sixth Form? 

The beginning of Year 11 is a busy time for students, as they settle into the new academic year and begin to prepare for the hard work ahead. It is also the perfect time to start thinking about Further Education options, as many Sixth Forms begin to host Open Events for prospective students and their families.  

We know that young people have many options to consider when choosing the right Sixth Form for them. Here we’ve summarised our top reasons for choosing Roundhay Sixth Form. 


Academic Achievement 

We’re extremely proud of the fantastic results our students achieve in their A Level and vocational qualifications. In 2022, 57% of vocational entries were awarded a Distinction/Distinction* and 65% of A Level grades were A*-B.  

We offer high academic challenge within a supportive environment to help our students become ambitious, independent learners who are well-prepared for their next steps. 


Personal Development 

Despite this excellent track record, we are not an ‘exam factory’. We’re committed to helping our students to develop both personally and academically, leaving our Sixth Form as well-rounded, caring and confident young adults. 

A real strength of Roundhay Sixth Form is our wide range of personal development opportunities, including community engagement, student leadership, extracurricular clubs, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and much more. 


Impressive Destinations 

As a result of their academic accolades and varied enrichment experiences, Roundhay Sixth Form students have a great deal to include in their CVs and personal statements.  

Supporting students with the next step of their career is a priority of the Sixth Form experience at Roundhay, and all students are offered personalised guidance to help them make the right choices for them. 

Year after year, we see our alumni progress onto the Russell Group universities, prestigious apprenticeships and high-quality employment that they deserve.
