This is an exceptional place where students, staff, governors and parents are wholly committed to the school mission, which is to provide excellence each and every day, with learning at the centre of all we do. We are proud of our heritage, and have been serving the local community since 1694, when Robert May, a local Mercer, bequeathed the sum of Six Hundred Pounds of Lawful English Money to be paid for the maintenance of a Free-School in the Town of Odiham.
There is a strong ethos of mutual respect and appreciation of hard work here. Examination results are always high, well above national averages. Most of our Year 11 students go on to well-known sixth-form colleges, and from there to distinguish themselves in universities and colleges. Our students are cheerful and well-informed. Our Academy status and recent changes to the education landscape provide great opportunities to develop the school even further so that students leave it as accomplished, knowledgeable, rounded individuals who will go on to make a positive contribution to other people’s lives, locally, nationally and worldwide.

We aim to ensure that students 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. We support this aim by:
-pursuing excellence in all areas of our work, particularly in learning and teaching
-helping all students to discover all their abilities and talents and to develop them in the most positive and constructive manner. We aim to support and encourage their development during the years of adolescence so that they are prepared for their roles as adults in the wider world.
-promoting the skills and understanding necessary for students to achieve the highest possible individual, academic achievement and a critical awareness of their natural, aesthetic, historical ethical and technological environments.
-encouraging them to develop qualities of self-discipline, confidence, inquiry, moral compass, creativity and sensitivity. We actively seek to encourage them to respect the needs and rights of others.
We are committed to achieving these aims for all students, irrespective of their race, religion, beliefs, sex, social background and any disability or special need. However good or excellent we may be as a school, we continue, restlessly, to seek further improvements.
We wish to promote good, positive relationships within the school and between Robert May’s and the wider community. We aim to promote good communications between all concerned with the school and greatly value the contribution of students, teaching and non-teaching staff, Governors, parents and others related to the school.
