We pride ourselves on our ethos and culture which promotes positive relationships and behaviour. In our most recent Ofsted report (May 2017), inspectors observed that ‘there is a positive ethos throughout the school, which is enhanced by strong relationships between staff and pupils. Pupils conduct themselves well, and are respectful and courteous to one another. Behaviour continues to be typically exemplary’. 

Technology is a strong subject within the school and we are proud of our record of success. Public examinations were not completed in summer 2020, however, RMS students continued to perform exceptionally well in Technology subjects.

We have high expectations of all our students and are committed to the personal and professional development of our staff. Our flagship CPD programme includes courses suitable for professional development at all career stages including preparation for middle and senior leadership.

Robert May’s School, which dates from 1694, is a high attaining and oversubscribed 11-16 Academy school with a distinctive ethos based on the charitable principles of our founder. We are situated in a semi-rural setting in Hampshire, with good rail and road access.
