Sixth Form Personal and Social Development

Our aim at Chobham Academy is to help all of our Sixth Formers to become happy, successful and well-educated young adults. We want them to achieve the best higher education destinations and career opportunities that they are capable of.

By the time our Sixth Formers leave Chobham at the end of Year 13 we want all students to have accomplished the following:

  • Achieved examinations results which match or exceed their academic potential on joining the Sixth Form
  • Developed a love of learning for its own sake which will last beyond school
  • Developed sophisticated study skills which enable them to be highly effective lifelong learners
  • Undergone a range of challenges which have enabled them to be resilient and to think creatively under pressure
  • Had a successful experience of leading others
  • Developed social skills which enable them to be polite and comfortable around new people and to interact successfully with people from a range of backgrounds
  • Developed a strong sense of social responsibility
  • Developed a sound understanding of the main issues affecting society on local, national and international levels
  • Acquired cultural capital through encountering literature, art, music, history and experiencing the natural environment.

In order to achieve these ambitions our students will encounter a wide range of experiences during their career in Sixth Form. These include:

  • Leadership responsibilities within the Sixth Form and across the whole school student body
  • Leading younger students in a range of activities and always acting as positive role models for students lower down the school
  • Trips which place students in unusual and challenging environments (e.g. overseas adventures)
  • Charitable fundraising activities (e.g. rag week)
  • Volunteering with organisations in the local community
  • A programme of visiting speakers
  • Visits to universities
  • Visits to leading employers in a range of graduate entry professions
  • Cultural visits to theatres, galleries and places of historical interest

We want our Sixth Formers to learn about the world around them and to think about and discuss issues of relevance to themselves and their generation. The Academy has a strong moral code based upon the overarching principle of treating others as you would have them treat you. We want all of our Sixth Formers to actively abide by this principle in their daily lives in and out of school.

It is also important that our Sixth Form students have an understanding and appreciation of British Values. Students means possessing an awareness of how our democratic system works and appreciating its importance. Students are taught to value equality of opportunity, freedom of expression and the responsibility of all to contribute to how our country is governed.
