Chobham opened in 2013 as part of the highly successful Harris group of Academies. Our 3-18 ‘all-through’ Academy is a world class educational legacy of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Situated within the East Village complex in Stratford, Chobham serves a new community of 3000 homes along with established communities in Newham. In July 2015, Chobham was graded as Outstanding in every category by Ofsted.

Stratford is one of the most rapidly developing parts of London. As well as new housing, and the Olympic legacy sports facilities, the area is becoming home to some of the country’s leading cultural organisations including additional locations for Sadler’s Wells Theatre and the V and A Museum. These organisations form part of the exciting arts quarter quickly growing in the area.

High tech industries in computing and robotics are also to be found locally as this progressive industrial sector takes root in east London. Universities including University College London (UCL) are at the forefront of this innovation.

Chobham Academy is keen to further develop relationships with these new organisations (along with well-established local centres of excellence like the renowned Stratford Theatre).

We are also very fortunate to have superb transport links making Stratford one of the most easily accessible parts of London. Chobham Academy is 15-minute walk from Stratford underground station (10 minutes into the City of London on the Central Line) and five minute walk from Stratford International station (a six-minute journey from St. Pancras). There is also a DLR station at Stratford International.

Chobham is a vibrant, culturally diverse and happy inner-city community. Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds bringing with them a breadth of talents and experiences. Chobham students are friendly, welcoming and eager to learn. They are ambitious to make the most of their abilities both at school and beyond. Our students have enormous potential and respond enthusiastically to their teachers.

We also have a fantastic staff team with a great blend of youth and experience. Chobham staff are committed to our students and to supporting and learning from one another. There is an outstanding professional development programme across the Harris Federation and our staff benefit from both in house and inter-school training activities. We also have additional expertise on hand from the Harris Consultancy Team who are available to offer guidance across the curriculum.

We do hope that you apply for a role with us and look forward to meeting you if you are invited to interview.
