At Chobham, we encourage a coaching dialogue with observation feedback. Rather than saying 'what should you do?' we encourage saying 'what did you see?' This diagnostic question enables the observer to understand the decision-making process of the teacher they are coaching.

PE Department Update and News

PE Department News


Despite the difficult challenges we encountered because of the pandemic, the students at Chobham Academy have had multiple opportunities and experiences that have highlighted a success across the board. This ranges from our boys Sixth Form Football Academy completing their season, to master class opportunities with ex A-level students and Year 11 and Year 13 Leaver’s events.

Football Academy

The end of the season finished on a high for both our Year 12 and Year 13 students. Mr Okunja took over as manager for the Football Academy and has been well supported by his colleagues to deliver a range of technical and tactical sessions as well as strength and conditioning opportunities. This allowed them to compete in a range of friendlies.

We also would like to take the opportunity to thank the boys for the service and performances they have put in over the last two years. The boys ended their football academy journey with another solid performance with an 8-4 victory.


West Ham Ladies Football Academy

This year, we were fortunate to have the continued partnership with West Ham. They had two teams this year; the u21s and u18s. The dual career pathway still stands and whilst balancing both football and education alongside one another, they have also utilised the opportunity to give back to the school and volunteer in helping host internal events such as interhouse.

A special shout out to Wiktoria Kiszkis, who has been offered a professional football contract at WKS Wroslaw (in Poland) and Janaye Beaufort with West Ham.  

Master Class opportunities with ex-Chobham Academy students

Our Year 8 Chobham Experience students worked with two of our ex-Chobham students; Anisa Begum and Priscilla Foley. Both university students held a master class to learn about performance enhancing drugs through acting out a court case. Anya Kramer, Year 8, mentioned ‘I really liked knowing what a court case entails and it really helped me think about how I would like to articulate myself.’


Year 11 Leavers event

To wish our Year 11 students a farewell and goodbye, the PE department were delighted to be able to host a football and dodgeball tournament as well as a Wacky Sports Day. This entailed a range of activities including an obstacle relay, tug of war and a three-legged race just to name a few. We would like to wish them good luck for their futures!
