The Roundhill Academy (formerly Roundhill Community College) is a high school with academy status in Thurmaston, Leicestershire. The school currently has an 11-16 intake. The most recent OFSTED inspection report (February 2014) identified the school as "Good" in every category and "the academy's work to ensure students are safe is outstanding". The school's mission statement is 'Achieving Success Through Learning Together'. The school wants every student to be the best that they can be, both inside and outside of the classroom. The Roundhill Academy has made the decision to become an 11-16 school and is currently awaiting DfE approval for this change. "The academy is a harmonious community. A clear ethos of mutual respect exists between adults and students and amongst the students themselves" (Ofsted, February 2014).
