The first & most important part of making positive changes is showing that you want to change. These amazing young people did not have to attend school today. However, they did not want to miss the session and got themselves in. Very proud. https://t.co/lCwhsgNoSU

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Our Specialisms

At Chobham Academy, we are committed to ensuring that our students receive the very best opportunities.

English

Our specialisms in English and Performing Arts are real areas of Excellence. Students receive 5 periods of English tuition a week, and study a rich and varied curriculum, aexploring classic Literature alongside contemporary works to enhance their cultural knowledge. Students become excellent orators, through opportunities to perfect their public speaking skills. The English Department offer a range of Extra Curricular clubs (please see subject page), to enable students to engage with the subject.  The Department also offer a broad programme of trips and visits to theatres, museums, lectures and beyond.  In the last year, students have received lectures from the acclaimed poet Owen Sheers; visited the Young Vic theatre to see 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and even featured in a TV programme, in which Olympian Christine Ohurougu - herself an English graduate - participated in a lesson on Sports Journalism.

Performing Arts

Performing Arts is integral to the curriculum and ethos at Chobham Academy and plays an important part in developing outstanding creative, innovation, collaboration and performance skills in all our students.  All primary and secondary students have access to specialist teaching in Music, Drama and Dance.  In Key Stage 3, students receive four periods of Performing Arts tuition each week, exploring a wide range of practitioners, styles and genres from different places and eras.  The Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 curriculum is further enhanced by free instrumental tuition for all students for 30 minutes per week.  This instrument tuition is continued at Key Stage 4 and 5 for students studying GCSE, A-Level or BTEC Music or Performing Arts, and students are encouraged to take graded music exams on their instrument.  The Performing Arts Department offer a wide variety of extra-curricular clubs and activities and provide regular performance opportunities in assemblies, termly concerts and shows.  A particular highlight of the academic year are the annual musical theatre productions involving students from across the Academy.  Students are encouraged to develop their potential at every opportunity and it is Department policy to bring in as many professional practitioners as possible to raise aspirations and expose students to the professional world of performing arts.  The Department has developed key partnerships with West End Actors, the Barbican, Guildhall Conservatoire, Newham Music Hub and Every Child a Musician in order to enhance provision.  The Department also offer a broad range of trips to see live concerts, theatre and performances.  At Key Stage 5, students are offered a specialist Performing Arts 'Virtuoso' pathway.  This pathway provides focused, specialist, pre-vocational training through the delivery of the BTEC Extended Diploma and four A-Level options.  The Department seeks to discover young people with talent, flair and above all a serious ambition to work in the performing arts industry to follow the 'Virtuoso' pathway.  Entry onto the course is through audition and participants benefit from free access to LAMDA exams, musical instrument or singing tuition for one hour each week and an in-house agency because part-time professional work is encouraged.
