About Robert Bloomfield Academy

Welcome to Robert Bloomfield Academy

Situated in the heart of the Shefford community, pupils, parents and staff are incredibly proud of their school and reap huge rewards academically and pastorally over their four-year journey with us. No stone is left unturned in the pursuit to maintain our outstanding school vision and you will find that the curriculum and opportunities presented to the pupils at Robert Bloomfield is above and beyond that of any other school.

We have a superb learning environment, enhanced by specialist facilities across numerous subjects, which enable us to offer a full range of opportunities in and beyond the classroom. We have recently opened a specialist Year 5 block of classrooms and a brand new, state of the art Learning Resource Centre. In 2009 we were designated a specialist Science, Maths and Technology school under the banner of Engineering, which complimented the already existing specialism of Modern Languages. Our Ofsted Inspection Report in 2014 graded the school as ‘Outstanding’ in all categories. In 2012 our school became a Teaching School, one of the first 200 in the country.

Above all, we are a caring community that values each child and provides them with the opportunity to fulfil their potential and enjoy learning. We believe in building a child’s confidence, adaptability and resilience for the future within an ordered and structured environment, where high expectations are a habit.


Sam Farmer, Principal.
