Roundhill Primary School is set on the south west side of the city of Bath serving the local wards of Southdown, Whiteway and Twerton. Roundhill Primary was formed in 2015, as a result of amalgamation of Southdown Infants and Southdown Juniors. Since then we have had major refurbishment of the buildings and the school provides a spacious, well-resourced learning environment. The school is set in extensive, attractive grounds, which make a significant contribution to our curriculum and after school provision. We have excellent nursery provision for two year olds and our three year old provision is within our integrated Foundation Stage Unit.

In December 2018, we joined The Partnership Trust, which is a multi-academy trust.

Roundhill is a welcoming, positive and happy school community. We are a growing, diverse and inclusive community school, providing exciting, broad and creative learning opportunities for all pupils. Our children are well behaved, happy and eager to learn from all experiences. We have strong links with our local churches and community groups to provide support for our families.

We are a committed, friendly and supportive staff team aiming for excellence for all. We have an experienced leadership team who support high quality professional development. We are looking for applicants with commitment and passion to educating the whole child and maintaining very high standards in teaching and learning.
