Principal’s Introduction

A warm welcome to Robert Smyth Academy

Robert Smyth Academy was founded in 1607 as the Market Harborough Grammar School and has served the young people and community of Market Harborough and surrounding villages for over 400 years. Today, Robert Smyth is a thriving converter Academy with over 1200 students on roll. We currently take in students from age 14-19 and propose to widen our age range to 11-19 from the start of the Autumn Term 2016.

Our motto, ‘Innovation and Excellence’, permeates all that we do. The high expectations that we have for ourselves and the students in our care lead to academic success and create a forward thinking, open-minded culture where young people are eager to learn and experience new opportunities. We are so proud of the many achievements and successes of our students. Not only do they excel academically but they participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities and develop important life skills by challenging themselves, supporting others and taking a lead in organising academy and community events.

I hope that you will find our website helpful, informative and easy to navigate. It should provide you with a flavour of the busy and varied life to be had at Robert Smyth. I look forward to meeting you in person at one of our many academy events this year. Or alternatively, if you would like to visit the academy during the school day, we will be more than happy to arrange this.

Principal
