Robert May's School

Chris Woodhead, former Chief Inspector of Schools, puts this Odiham comprehensive among the nation's top 150.

ROBERT May's is a successful, well-established school providing a fully comprehensive education for pupils between the ages of 11-16.

It is situated in the attractive village of Odiham, offering extensive facilities on a very pleasant site. The school has developed a reputation for high standards and examination success at all levels. Robert May's is consistently one of the highest achieving schools in Hampshire. Such achievements attract pupils from a wide geographical area.

The school works to support pupils, parents and staff in an effective partnership and is committed to the all round development of each pupil, providing them with an education in which they can realise their full potential in a supportive and caring environment.

High standards of behaviour are expected from all pupils. Self-discipline and courtesy towards others are an integral part of the good working atmosphere; Robert May's School is a caring school where individuals matter and personal qualities are valued.

There is a successful and effective pastoral system that complements and supports the work of departments in implementing the National Curriculum.

The school delivers a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum for all pupils; it supports those with learning difficulties and enhances the curriculum for able pupils. Pupils are able to study up to nine or ten subjects at GCSE level and are carefully prepared to continue their education 16-19 at the local colleges of further education.

There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities, clubs and societies available for all pupils. The school has been awarded a certificate of distinction by Education Extra for the quality of the extra-curricular provision, and has also been recognised as an Investor in People.

In 2000 the school underwent an Ofsted inspection and received an outstanding report. It has been recognised by Chris Woodhead, then the Chief Inspector of Schools, who has listed Robert May's in the top 150 in the country.
