About Robert May's School

Robert May’s School is a highly successful comprehensive single academy trust school, with the largest catchment area in Hampshire. In recent years the school has ranked in the top 10% of national non-selective schools for attainment.  Its 1,290 students, aged 11-16, come from Hook, Odiham, Hartley Wintney, North Warnborough, Long Sutton and the edges of Basingstoke.  It is located close to Junction 5 of the M3 and is easy to reach.  Outcomes for students are consistently well above national averages.  The school is currently expanding with an extra form of entry each year until the number on roll reaches 1,350.  The school has worked in partnership with local Teaching School alliances and prides itself on the quality of its in-house CPD delivery.  The current Headteacher is a National Leader of Education and the school is a National Support School. A growing professional relationship with the local RAF station has opened the door to increasing opportunities for teaching, learning and leadership in the locality, especially in STEMC subjects.

Vision and values 

We aim to ensure that young people leave Robert May’s School as accomplished, knowledgeable, rounded individuals who will go on, not only with determination and resilience to better themselves, but also to make a positive contribution to other people’s lives: locally, nationally and worldwide. The school identifies itself as a community seeking excellence for all. Our values system is based on Respect and Responsibility, Management and Morals, Support and Self-awareness. We ask students to respect themselves and each other, respect our learning environment and respect our teachers and their work. Students are taught to be responsible for themselves, for their own work, and to take responsibility for others, even when something might go wrong. We encourage students to manage themselves, their own time and learning opportunities so that self-control is developed. We feel strongly that everything we do should have a moral imperative: there should always be an intended positive outcome from which others can benefit.  Students are expected to support their own learning, through their behaviour and attitude to others. They are enabled to develop self-awareness as good future citizens and contributors to society. In summary we ask everyone in our learning community to learn to help themselves, learn to help others and learn to make the world a better place.
