Academy Life

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!
