We pride ourselves on our ethos and culture, which promotes positive relationships and behaviour.

Pupils conduct themselves well, and are respectful and courteous to one another. Behaviour continues to be typically exemplary’.

English is a leading department within the school and we are proud of our outstanding record of success. This summer, 84% of our students achieved a Grade 4 or higher in English and 81% achieved a Grade 4 or higher in both English and Maths. We have high expectations of all our students and are committed to the personal and professional development of our staff.

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.
