About Robert Bloomfield Academy

Welcome to Robert Bloomfield Academy

Situated in the heart of the Shefford and Clifton community, pupils, parents and staff are incredibly proud of their school and reap huge rewards academically and pastorally over the four-year journey we currently offer.  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. Our Ofsted Inspection Report in 2014 graded the school as ‘Outstanding’ in all categories and we strive daily to live up to this expectation. 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.

Robert Bloomfield is on the cusp of an exciting new future. While currently a middle school, change is coming over the next two/three years as the local authority transitions to a two-tier model of education. Our conversion lies at the heart of the primary/secondary plans Central Bedfordshire Council is proposing for the town of Shefford. As a member of our team, you will play a major role in shaping this journey.


Sam Farmer, Principal.
