Headteacher's Welcome

My name is Mr. Higgins, and I am the new Principal at Royds Academy.

Royds Academy is a community school located in the south of Leeds, West Yorkshire. At Royds, all students are encouraged to achieve their full potential regardless of their background or ability.  The underlying mission for Royds is to ensure that when students leave, they are happy, well-qualified and confident young adults who will be successful in the next chapter of their learning. We aim to develop a set of values, attitudes, skills and behaviours in all our students that will support them and contribute to their success in school and in adult life. These qualities include respect, leadership, motivation, resilience, self-control, self-confidence, social and emotional skills, and communication skills.

Royds has many wonderful qualities which I would welcome you to see firsthand. It is very important to us that we maintain a close relationship with parents and carers as education is a partnership between school and home. Throughout the year there will be many opportunities for you to visit the academy and see for yourself the wonderful work that is being done.
