Our Curriculum

At Chobham Academy we believe that what our students learn and the way in which they learn are fundamental components of the school. The curriculum shapes both of these aspects but particularly what students learn. The overriding principles which govern our curriculum strategy are:

  • A broad curriculum which gives students access to a range of academic disciplines. We recognise the key importance of English, Maths and Science but also believe passionately in the value of languages, the humanities and the arts. At Chobham, all of these disciplines are represented within our curriculum.
  • A balanced curriculum in which all subjects are given a reasonable proportion of curriculum time so that students may learn in depth and come to understand the nature of each subject.
  • The principles of a broad and balanced curriculum are maintained until the end of Key Stage 4, notwithstanding the need for a degree of greater specialism when the students make their GCSE choices.
  • There is a balance struck between giving all students a broad curriculum entitlement and ensuring that the individual needs and aptitudes of all students are recognised. In practice, we look to introduce a degree of greater individuality for students when Key Stage 4 begins.
  • We begin Key Stage 4 in Year 9. The purpose of this approach is not merely to maximise GCSE achievement. By having a three year GCSE curriculum, we enable students to study in more depth the subjects in which they are most interested. Our Key Stage 4 curriculum structure enables all students to select from a variety of subjects including the arts, PE, business and economics and sociology.
  • Wherever possible, our curriculum is designed to reflect the backgrounds and interests of our students. We want our curriculum to be relevant to their present lives and their future aspirations.
  • Our Post 16 curriculum is designed to accommodate students with a range of academic abilities and aspirations. Consequently, we offer a range of A Level and vocational courses.
  • As well as the academic curriculum delivered through lessons the school is very aware of the value of PSHE, Citizenship and careers education. These form an integral part of our education through our half termly Innovation Days and through tutor time as well as in lessons whenever appropriate.
  • Enrichment is an integral part of our curriculum on three days each week. Enrichment classes are a compulsory element of each student’s timetable and they give students an opportunity to extend their learning beyond the normal curriculum, increase their cultural capital and develop interests which will hopefully last a lifetime.
  • The concept of the wider curriculum is embedded at Chobham. We believe that learning at school incorporates everything the students do between leaving home in the morning and returning in the evening. This includes the way the students build relationships, how they move around the school buildings and how they conduct themselves at breaks and lunchtimes.
  • Homework forms part of every subject’s curriculum and we expect students to complete homework conscientiously.
  • The effective and principled use of technology is built into our curriculum as a theme running across all lessons and other curriculum activities. We want Chobham students to be competent users of IT equipment and software who also understand the opportunities and potential perils presented by the internet and social media.
  • Throughout the Chobham curriculum, we wish to encourage the development of key learning skills. Foremost among these are resilience, independent organisation, problem solving and inculcating a love of learning.

16-19 Study Programme Requirements

 

We recognise our obligation to deliver an appropriate study programme for all of our Post 16 students. This is in keeping with our aim that all Chobham Sixth Form students should be entitled to an effective system of tutorials, study support and careers guidance to supplement their academic curriculum.

Key elements of the Chobham Sixth Form study programme are:

  • Appropriate curriculum time allocated to all A Level and vocational qualifications.
  • Timetabled guided learning periods for all students when not in their subject based lessons.
  • Mentoring and study support for students identified as requiring assistance.
  • A Sixth Form Committee enabling all students to express their views on how the Sixth Form is run and what we can do to improve it further.
  • A comprehensive UCAS process for all students wishing to apply to university.
  • A careers guidance programme including literature, visits and external speakers. This is aimed both at those students wishing to go directly to work after Sixth Form and those wishing to enter employment post university.
  • A Sixth Form enrichment programme with a variety of in house activities and visiting speakers; all planned to broaden the learning of our Sixth Formers beyond what they would normally encounter in their taught subjects.
  • A Sixth Form study skills programme.
