Chobham Experience

Chobham Experience – Introduction to Law

On Monday 9th November, Year 9 Chobham Experience students took part in an ‘introduction to law’ event. Along with other schools, students virtually met with two criminal barristers. They learned about the justice system, both in this country and abroad, discussing why the UK has such an effective system in comparison to other countries.

Students discussed representation across the profession, particularly the lack of representation of black, female barristers. Leading to an interesting conversation about the wider impact this may have on prosecuting criminals. This was inspiring for some of our students who said they would now consider this as a career option.

The event was organised through the Kalisher Trust, an organisation with an aim to encourage and inspire young talented individuals, from diverse back grounds, to work towards a career as a barrister.

Well done to all students involved, for your interesting questions and engagement in discussions.

Chobham Experience – Introduction to medicine

On Friday 6th November, 4 year 10 students took part in an ‘introduction to medicine’ event. This was a virtual event, with two doctors leading the session and students were able to interact through MS teams.

During this session, students were engrossed in a discussion about medical ethics, leading them to form their own judgements on particular case studies and justify their decisions about patient’s treatment based on the information given. It was impressive to see the students articulate their ideas so professionally!

Students were excited to learn about the role of a doctor and particularly engaged during the diagnostic testing, taking thei pulse, breathing rate and temperatures and learning normative values.

Finally, they learned the requirements of applying to medical school, asking questions about this as a career and it sparked their excitement and interest in this as a future career.

Well done for behaving in a professional manner and being excellent ambassadors for the Academy.
