Welcome to Roundwood Park School

Thank you for visiting our website which is intended to give you an introduction to our school. As a school graded Outstanding by OFSTED, we were one of the first schools in the county to convert to Academy Status in 2011.

Alan HenshallRoundwood Park is a school with a strong reputation as an innovative and exciting place in which to learn and to teach. It is a place where traditional values of smart appearance, excellent behaviour and acting with integrity mingle with modern learning and high academic standards.

Our clear definition of the characteristics of the Roundwood Park Leaver as a happy young adult who is not only well-qualified, but also a well-rounded individual means that students leave us with optimism, self-confidence and a desire to change the world for the better.

The key to our success lies in our Aspire programme, which builds on the many years of experience of teaching students from Harpenden and its surrounding villages. Aspire develops learning habits which, in addition to knowledge, allow our students to become resilient, resourceful and creative as they develop as learners. They develop these habits not only in their lessons but in the many extra-curricular opportunities, sporting and musical events and on trips and visits within the UK or abroad which we offer.

The students and staff of Roundwood Park always offer a warm welcome to visitors and there is always so much going on. Why not visit us to experience LIFE at Roundwood Park for yourself? We are confident that you will be inspired by what you see.
