Really looking forward to welcoming the outreach team from the University of Oxford to talk to our most able students this week.

It's worth knowing that today was Mr Tucker's heaviest football defeat since his ultimate team of FIFA 16 conceded 8 in a seasons match 🤦‍♂️

Whilst Y11 netballers suffer a 1st defeat at Kibworth, the y10 team continue to win emphatically. 2-42 the score! #gracegoals #battlerbraham

Y10 & 11 footballers battle but succumb to strong Kibworth teams away from home. Much work to do ahead of future fixtures #ontothenext

Big thank you to the students who officiated fixtures this week 🙌 #starsoftheweek

We won't mention the year 11 game... it didn't go well 🙈 😬

⚽️Good performance from the new Y10s yesterday. Despite missing 2 penalties, they won 5-2 vs Welland Park in the rain 🌧 #remarkablerushby

Enjoyable fixtures all round. Made so by the great attitude of both teams. What sport is all about 👍 https://t.co/bEt4ZBd77O

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 Academy with almost 1000 students on roll, including a sixth form of 500 students. At the start of the Autumn Term 2016, we became an all-through 11-19 Academy and welcomed our first cohort of Year 7 students.

Our motto Respect, Succeed, Aspire embodies the ethos of Robert Smyth and 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 that we enjoy 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.
