The school was opened on the site of the since closed Pitmaston Secondary School and originally known as 'Robin Hood Junior & Infants School'. Although this official title remained until academy conversion in 2013, the school became widely known as 'Robin Hood Primary School' and used the tagline 'the school of the future for the learner of today'.
The first head teacher, Dave Broadfield, established the school as a leader in the use of Information & Communication Technologies in primary education. This work was continued by subsequent head Dr. Neil Hopkin, who established Robin Hood as one of the earlier English schools to use blogs for every class from Nursery to Year 6.
In 2013 Robin Hood converted to academy status under the executive headship of Richard Hunter and was renamed Robin Hood Academy.
In January 2016, Steve Taylor took up the role of Executive Headteacher.
