Rodillian Academy Sports Trials

Fanatical about rugby or netball?

Try out for a secondary school place at The Rodillian Academy. Because we’re a fantastic school, competition for places is always tough. But we’re now opening up some of our 2021 places to girls and boys in the Leeds/Wakefield area who have a real determination to excel in netball or rugby. We have outstanding coaches and facilities, as well as brilliant relationships with sports clubs.  We have forged strong links with Sandal RUFC, Morley RUFC, Strong links with Sandal RUFC, Morley RUFC and Rothwell Juniors Netball Club. Our student athletes have also represented county and regional levels.  If you like the sound of all this, we want to meet you. Come to our sporting trials and try out for a place at the Rodillian Academy.

It’s not just about sport

Our students do really well in their GCSEs, thanks to excellent teachers who make their subjects interesting and care about each pupil’s progress. 74% of students achieved grade 4 in both GCSE English and Maths, this is significantly above the national average.

More than just exams

At The Rodillian Academy, we teach so much more than school subjects. We help every student to build their confidence, discover new talents, experience exciting new activities and get so much more out of school.

What Ofsted says

“Staff and pupils live and breathe the vision and inspectors were told several times, by both staff and pupils, what an ‘amazing place it is to be’. Staff are passionate about the vision that has been set for the academy. They are energised and resolute that pupils should make the best possible progress.” – Ofsted report
