"Damilola had ambition, he wanted to change the world. After 20 years, this is how I would like him to be remembered, as a boy of hope. Our boy of hope.” Richard Taylor OBE reflects on the legacy of his son: https://t.co/qy5nTxzzYn https://t.co/EQ77XDr9Rx

The models also helped the students understand the meaning of using models and their limitations, in order to explain or learn a particular concept (in this case cells). This is a project based demonstrating Art and Science skills in STEAM. https://t.co/S54bUfUv8b

These are from my Year 7s using their Arts skills to make 3D science models of Cells (animal and plant cells). The students researched and applied their theoretical knowledge on building these models. The models are made by recyclable materials that students found at home. https://t.co/QfD12VOggC

Men, it's okay to accept that you’re struggling. You don't need to have a stiff upper lip or pull yourself together. They are phrases of the past. We all have mental health, and we all need and deserve help when we struggle with it.

24 March 2020Geography Department UpdateAn update from the Geography department- on behalf of Humanities! The Geography department has organised a range of field trips to support the learning of Year 12 Geography students. On all of these trips, students have worked incredibly well as a team, built some strong friendships and shown some extremely high levels of resilience. These field trips have been organised to support student learning and preparation for the Year 12s Geography coursework that they will be working on from now until Year 13. These trips started in January when fifteen Year 12 students went to Dorset for 3 days with Miss Chalkley and Mr Bale. We collected a range of data on place representation in Boscombe and a range of physical fieldwork including measuring beach profiles along Chesil Beach- students really did experience fieldwork in extreme settings with it being the first storm of the year, 50mph winds on the coast was very interesting! The students really were an asset to Chobham Academy and completed some excellent work coping extremely well in often difficult conditions- Miss Chalkley's waterproof trousers did provide some hilarity for the group! We then went on our next field trip in February, this time to Bradwell on Sea to allow us to have real world experience of our Changing Places case study with Mr Eyre and Miss Chalkley. This involved a presentation by the village vicar explaining the history of the village and answering any questions that we had. Next, the students worked in groups to complete a range of human fieldwork activities to support their understanding of fieldwork methods. This was finished off with a village tour in the minibus by Mr Eyre! Again, the weather wasn't on our side and students showed great resilience to complete the range of fieldwork activities planned to support their learning.  Finally, Mr Bale and Mr Khan took Y12 students on a walking field trip around Hackney Wick- it was nice and sunny this time! This trip was designed to support student understanding of their local area and give a real world experience of their other case study for the Changing Places topic that students are currently working on. The field trip also allowed students to develop their fieldwork techniques to support their NEA preparation over the coming weeks and months
9 March 2020Performing Arts UpdateIt has been a busy term in performing arts with lots of exams taking place. Wednesday 26th February saw the Year 11 GCSE Drama cohort complete their component 2 exam. Students performed duologues from a number of different texts to a visiting examiner. These performances had been rehearsed  by students for around 12 weeks and count towards 20% of their final exam. Unfortunately we will not find out the results of this until August 2020, however students performances were some of the strongest I have seen in my teaching career and they should be very proud! This was followed up with a celebration trip to see Cyrano de Bergerac staring James McAvoy with many students hailing it as ‘the best thing they have ever seen!’. This was followed by the Year 13 A-Level music exam on Monday 2nd March. We had three fabulous singers performing a recital of 12 minutes each for the Eduqas examiner, which makes up 35% of their A-Level. Repertoire included ‘Dido’s Lament’ by Purcell, ‘If I didn’t believe in you’ by Jason Robert Brown, ‘Turning tables’ by Adele and many more pieces across a variety of styles and genres. The students did a brilliant job, drawing the audience into different musical worlds and performing to an exceptionally high standard. They did themselves proud. Next up we have the Year 13 A-Level Drama exam taking place on Monday 16th March. Similarly to the GCSE in Drama, this is worth 20% of the final A-Level and will be assessed by a visiting examiner from Edexcel. Students will each perform a monologue lasting 2-3minutes, followed by a scripted group performance based on the play Attempts on Her Life by Martin Crimp.  They will have a mock performance of this on Tuesday 10th March at 16:30 where friends and family can attend. Please come along and support their hard work. If you can’t make it please wish them luck!
5 March 2020Alumni EventYesterday Chobham held its first Alumni event where past students liaised with our current students giving them honest and relevant advice about their further education pathways. Our students felt that it was useful getting genuine feedback from "people that had just been through the process, so really knew what they were talking about". The workshop consisted of one-to-one sessions tailored to the students specific pathway interests. Dialogue included student finance advice, the clearing process, realistic university choices, dealing with disappointment, writing imaginative and unique UCAS statements to help gain an interview and university not always being the only route to success. The alumni included students from a range of pathways including Russell Group universities, apprentices, creative pathways and industry. The event was so successful that we plan to build this into our career programme for years to come.   Our Alumni who attended the session were-   Zeeshan Raja Deloitte apprenticeship   Nusayba El-Bahry Law and International Relations Middlesex University   Jasmine Okoye International Rotation Degree Apprenticeship at Pearson College London 3-year Business Management degree with a Chartered Manager qualification.    Saliha Desai BA Hons French & Spanish – Open University   Chloe Vasta London School of Fashion BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Technology MA Fashion Futures   Wahid Hassan Architect in training   Mohmuda Khatun UCL Masters in Global Health and Development   Rachel West University of Westminster.

10 February 2020PE Department News Spring 2020Football Academy This is the second year that the Football Academy has been running at Chobham Academy. The boys are being managed by Mr Wigington and supported by his right hand men; Mr Starkey, Mr Okunja, Mr Weston and Mr Leonard. They have had a brilliant half to the season where they currently sit first in the division 2 London ESFA league with a 3-point lead. We look forward to seeing how the second half of the season goes.       Under 21s West Ham Ladies Football Academy At the start of the 2019-20 academic year, we were fortunate enough to partner up with the West Ham u21 ladies, who are coached by the phenomenal Stephen Opoko and his amazing team. The students are on a dual career pathway, balancing both football and education alongside one another. A special shout out to Wiktoria Kiszkis, who received her first professional football contract two months ago at the age of 16 and Janaye Beaufort for being called up to train with England just last month.           Football at Chobham Academy For the boys, each year group has their own football team and the girls have two teams; the u12s which consists of y7 students and the u13s which is a make up of both y7 & 8s. A special shout out to two teams in particular. First, the y10 boys who reached the quarter-finals (top 8) of the ESFA competition and second, the u12s girls’ Football team who reached the top 32 schools in London.                     Netball at Chobham Academy Led by both Miss Ellis and Miss Soni, Chobham have four teams ranging from y7-10. They have had a number of fixtures since the beginning of the year. The girls consistently illustrate good sportsmanship and resilience and they look forward to seeing what the second half of the year brings. A special student mention goes to Amelia Ivasyshvn, in y7, who has received player of the match six times for her amazing goal keeping skills.                               Sports Academics The PE department are proud to deliver a range of sporting academics across the board from GCSE PE, to CTEC Sport and Physical Activity, to A-Level PE. The students on each cohort work tremendously hard and their efforts are noticed. This is the first cohort of year 13s going through for both CTEC Sport and A-level PE. UCAS applications are in and we look forward to helping support the students to achieve their very best to get them one step closer towards university.                      Staff Sports As well as the students, the staff love getting involved in sport. We have two teams. The first being the men’s football team. They had played against both London Nautical and St Bon’s, where they were victorious against both teams. The second is the ladies’ Netball team. They had a very competitive game against the sixth formers but also came out on top. We look forward to seeing what more staff games are arranged in the near future.
