Roundhay School

at , Leeds, LS8 1 United Kingdom

Roundhay School is an all-through school located in Roundhay, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.It contains about 1,520 pupils, with about 287 pupils in the sixth form. The current headmaster is Neil Clephan. The school grounds are based across 22 acres , and are directly opposite Roundhay Park near the Roundhay Hall BUPA hospital.HistoryRoundhay School was established in 1903 as an all-boys grammar school. During World Wars I and II many of the Roundhay pupils above the age of 16 served with the Yorkshire Regiment.In 1972, along with many other grammar schools in the country, Roundhay Grammar School for Boys on Old Park Road and Roundhay High School for Girls on Jackson Avenue merged to form a mixed comprehensive secondary school under the Circular 10/70 introduced by Margaret Thatcher. Roundhay, like all other high schools in the city, changed from an 11–18 to a 13–18 school with the creation of the tier of Middle Schools - which were themselves abolished later when Roundhay became an 11–18 school again.During 2002–04 much of the old school was demolished and rebuilt under a £14 million Private Finance Initiative. The frontage of the building was left largely untouched, though the central section was replaced in favour of an upper-floor staff room that looks over the fields at the front of the school. However, the Sixth Form block located by the Gledhow Lane entrance was not part of the renovations, and remains the same building.
