Academy Life

15 November 2019Exciting Opportunities in HumanitiesIt has been an exciting first half term in Humanities so far this year. Here are some of our highlights: This Autumn our Politics A level students attended the yearly 'Congress to Campus' talk on contemporary US politics. Hosted by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library. Speakers included leading academics from UCL and Oxford Universities; also in attendance were former members of US Congress, Republican Luke Messer IN-06 and Democrat Nick Rahall WV-03. Students questioned the panel in the energetic style popularised by shows such as the BBCs 'Question Time. Our young political scientists spent the day at the conference enthralled in a forensic oral examination of current political events i.e. Donald trumps tweets, which the politics department at Chobham refer to as the US Executive's media age neo-imperial project; impacting international money markets in less than 49 characters! And symbolised in the political cult mantra 'Make America Great Again'.  Students also considered the degree to which Civil Rights for some marginalised groups in the US may be being actively eroded by neo conservative joined up governmental thinking via recent Supreme Court appointments and state legislatures. Students had the added benefit of receiving first-hand, answers to their questions from former US policy makers on a number of specialist and controversial political issues.  Politics students Timi, Tohura, Summer and Isabella concluded post conference that 'partisan policy divisions between the GOP and the Democrats in some parts of the US are very difficult to pin down in the current climate! There's very little difference between them'.  Whilst Esosa, Rakib, Onate, Alex, Joshua and Adi came to the consensus that ''Some citizens are more equal than others in the US political system, Washington is increasingly the playground for marginal vested interests''. Government and Politics Department. Last week our Year 13 Historians went to Senate House Library to carry out independent research for their coursework. Our students were first shown by the university how to carry out independent research before spending the day making full use of the resources the library has to offer. Some absolutely fantastic research was achieved by all; at the end of the day, some even opted to stay behind to continue independently! Time flies when you are having fun! The History Department. On Tuesday 12th November members of the Humanities Department organised and ran ‘Faith Day’ for all Year 7 students. Students spent the day learning about a range of religions and beliefs different from their own to create active citizens who are more aware of the diversity which exists in their local community. All students had the opportunity to visit different places of worship across London, and learn about Hinduism or Humanism through external speakers and school based activities. Overall, it was a great day for all staff and students involved. We look forward to organising this again next year! The Humanities Team.  
14 May 2019Visit to Hampton Court PalaceThe Chobham Academy Cultural Capital Research Project is a series of field trips to sites of cultural relevance in and around our beautiful capital city, London. Designed to develop a wider perspective of what learning can be and also stimulate an appreciation of how subjects such as Art, Dance, history and even Ecology can interrelate, the selected students embarked on their first field trip of the research project on Tuesday 14th May. The visit to Hampton Court Palace proved a resounding success with both students and staff agreeing that they had an incredibly enjoyable and culturally rewarding day out in the sun.   Two of the students who attended the trip said the following -   Kinza – ‘I'd just like to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this amazing experience. It was a really nice, relaxed and calm day. The palace had amazing architecture, beautiful gardens and flowers and some gorgeous china. The art work in the galleries were really interesting as it was very different compared to the art I see more often e.g. more vibrant and more modern, so it was really interesting to see such art work that had completely different style and techniques. The architecture of the walls inside the galleries was also amazing, the walls had gorgeous designs as well as the frames of the art pieces and the stair cases, not forgetting the amazing ceiling windows we saw above one of the art galleries right before coming down from the 2nd floor. The water fountains and the vines were designed extremely well, making them really sink in with the environment of the palace. Not forgetting the china with the flowers inside, seems like an extremely elegant creation. And finally, I don't think there are many negatives about the trip as it was really relaxed and enjoyable. Once again thank you for the great opportunity’   Deborah – ‘I really liked the trip because it gave me a lot of historical insight and artistic out look to the grounds.’
14 January 2019New York Trip - January 2019Last week 28 students and 3 staff embarked on Chobham Academy’s first ever Performing Arts trip to New York.  On arrival at the accommodation, students were able to sample some local fast food before heading up to the Top of the Rock for stunning night-time views across New York City.  Bagels were then ordered and delivered the next morning before a guided tour of Manhattan with sights including Grand Central station, the Flat Iron Building, New York Public Library, Chrysler Building Lobby and finally Times Square. After some down time allowing students to change and get ready we progressed onto Ellen’s Stardust Diner where every member of staff is aspiring to be a Broadway performer. Whilst eating and socialising the staff all perform big Broadway numbers, entertaining students and allowing them to sing along! After an entertaining feed we went on to watch Avenue Q at the New World Stages Theatre with some uncontrollable laughs! Friday saw the students visit Lincoln Centre of Performing Arts, the largest Performing Arts organisation in the world for a guided tour. Students were then given an opportunity to visit Central Park and play on the Heckscher Playground before some retail therapy at Macey’s and surrounding area. We then ate at Planet Hollywood which showcased famous movie memorabilia including the original Annie bucket! On the last day we went on the Staten Island Ferry and saw the Statue of Liberty and the beautiful New York skyline. All students had an amazing time in New York and I know it will be remembered forever. A special thanks goes out to all the parents/carers who supported with this trip and allowed their child to attend. Without your ongoing support none of this would have been possible. Also, a special thanks  to Ms Stewart-Parker and Ms Stephens for all your help! Let’s see what 2020 brings!
