Mr Hindes —Head of School

Hello to you all!
My name is Mr Hindes. As Head of School my role is to ensure that the quality of teaching and pastoral care you receive at The Roundhill Academy is of the highest quality. My aim is to provide a challenging and engaging curriculum that, together with a wide range of enrichment opportunities, give you the platform to develop to your full potential.

I have worked at the school for 25 years, starting as a Science teacher (which they still let me do occasionally!), and being part of the transition from a High School to an 11-16 Secondary. During this time it has always been the community feel of the school and the exceptional qualities of students and staff that have made it such an enjoyable place to work.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with you all, and I know I speak for all staff when I say we will do everything we can to make your time here both fruitful and enjoyable.

Ms Hardy – Head of Key Stage 3

Hello Year 6s My name is Ms Hardy and I am the Assistant Head of Key Stage 3 and I am very much looking forward to working with you over the next three years at The Roundhill Academy.  We have a very exciting and challenging curriculum for you, which will enable you to develop your knowledge and skills preparing you thoroughly for your entry into Key Stage 4.  You will see me a lot round school  and I will be regularly dropping into your lessons to see how you are engaging in your learning and looking at your progress.

I have worked at The Roundhill Academy for 16 years and I am extremely proud to be the Assistant Head of Key Stage 3 as what gives me most pleasure is seeing my students fulfilling their potential in our rich, supportive and inclusive environment.  We will ensure that you develop into mature and responsible  young people so you can take your place in society in our ever changing modern world.

I look forward to meeting you, where you  will begin this very exciting journey at The Roundhill Academy.

Miss Coltman – Transition and Wellbeing Lead

Hello Everyone! My name is Miss Coltman and I will be working with you during your transition from primary school, through to when you join us here at The Roundhill Academy.  I also look after student wellbeing and I teach Drama, so I will get to teach some of you when you arrive here after the summer holiday.

I have had the pleasure of working at The Roundhill Academy for 13 years and in that time I have witnessed many young people truly excel here and grow into exceptional young people.  It is a wonderful school and community to be a part of.  As students of The Roundhill Academy, you will learn and develop within an environment where you can become the very best version of yourselves and be well equipped to continue on your individual journeys when you leave us at the end of Year 11.

I can be found in Drama Studio 1, but you will see me around the school a lot at the beginning of your journey here at the Roundhill Academy.  You will also see me beforehand in your primary schools during the summer term.  I am really looking forward to meeting and working with you all on this exciting part of your journey.

Any questions or queries that you have, please email
