About The Robert Smyth Academy

Welcome to The Robert Smyth Academy; a highly successful school with a commitment to respect, success, and aspiration.

The Robert Smyth Academy provides a warm, welcoming setting where all children are well supported, and where their talents are nurtured through the exploration of a broad and rich curriculum. The Academy is highly oversubscribed and continues to be graded as ‘Good’ in all areas by Ofsted following a recent inspection report published in January 2023.

The Robert Smyth Academy is a proud comprehensive school which was founded in 1607 as the local grammar school in Market Harborough and which has its roots firmly grounded in a commitment to educational excellence. The school educates students with a wide range of aspirations, interests, and needs; everyone is welcome because our school is a family. The school offers outstanding pastoral support, excellent academic challenge and a wider curriculum that brings out the joy and confidence in all our young people.

The Robert Smyth Academy is located on an incredible estate set against the Hammond Arboretum and on the edge of Market Harborough. Students enjoy break and lunch times accompanied by the vista of large, luscious fields and they benefit from a fantastic catering service and dedicated restaurant and café facilities. Students enjoy relaxing and socialising in this wonderful space and this is highly conducive to their well-being.

Performance

Students who attend The Robert Smyth Academy regularly produce GCSE and A Level results that are well above national and local averages in both progress and attainment. This year, our students achieved GCSE results which placed our school within the Top 14% of all schools across the country and led to another year of students continuing with us to pursue A-Level studies. Many Sixth Form students progressed to Russell Group universities such as Oxford and Cambridge. These life changing outcomes show the impact of our commitment to academic challenge, pastoral care, and enrichment.

The school was inspected recently, and it was found to be ‘Good’ in all areas. The Ofsted inspection report is a glowing reflection of the school that we know.

We have a proud reputation for nurturing and developing the talent of teachers, leaders, and support staff so that they can continue to benefit from enhanced professional development opportunities.
