PE Department News Spring 2020
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.
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.
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.
