Sir William Robertson Academy (formerly Sir William Robertson High School) is a coeducational secondary school of around 890 pupils, situated in Welbourn, near Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England.

Sir William Robertson Academy is named after Field Marshal William Robertson, born in Welbourn, who served in the First World War.

The school used to specialise languages and taught French, Spanish and German. But now only French and German are taught. From September 2012 the school has catered for students aged 11 to 18. The school also achieved its best ever GCSE results in 2008.[citation needed]

The school has four houses, each with a differently coloured tie: Simla (yellow), Dragoon (red), Chitral (blue) and Lancer (green).
