The Market Bosworth School (formerly Market Bosworth High School) is a middle school with academy status located in the small town of Market Bosworth in Leicestershire, England. The school was rated 'Outstanding' in its 2018 OFSTED inspection.

Market Bosworth was established in 1969, as a comprehensive school for both sexes of any ability between the ages of 11 and 14; the school is next door to Dixie Grammar School.

Students start after leaving primary schools in villages such as Barlestone, Newbold Verdon and Desford.

In October 2012 a question posed by students at Market Bosworth High School was the first to be used in the world's first[dubious ] live broadcast of a science lesson at the Royal Albert Hall, in London.[clarification needed] The broadcast was streamed live via the internet to classrooms across the world over 15 minutes to an online audience of thousands, including pupils from the Leicestershire school; the question posed by pupils was "can sound warm objects up?" It was selected by organisers as their favourite and was answered by Dallas Campbell and Dr Yan Wong, presenters of BBC1 show Bang Goes The Theory.

In March 2013 TMBS won the National Science and Engineering Week Award for Best Secondary School Event of the year, their four-day 'TMBS Year 5 Science Fairs' were host to 250 Year 5 pupils from local primary schools and opened by former Leicester City Football Club captain Steve Walsh.
