Faculties and Departments

The Mathematics Faculty aim to give every student the skills to solve problems through a deep understanding of the concepts, allowing them to apply logical thinking and a range of skills to real-life applications. We aspire to instill a life-long love of mathematics and hope to nurture confident and enthusiastic young mathematicians.

The English Faculty’s intent is to inspire a love of English, both Language and high quality Literature. This will open doors in thinking and connect students to the issues, ideas and feelings which shape our lives, thus encouraging students to find their voice in the world. This is, indeed, the human experience.


We aim to implement our curriculum to ensure our students develop the following key attributes, which are essential for being a successful scientist, a problem solver and an informed member of society:

• Practical Skills      

• Application & Problem Solving 

• Communicating Science      

• Knowledge

We achieve this through engaging, creative and ultimately enjoyable lessons taught by our specialist Science team.




Humanities are academic disciplines that study aspects of human society and culture. The Humanities Faculty at The Chase comprises Geography, History, Politics (KS5) and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics (RPE). Our range of subjects allows students to glean an understanding of global cultures and world views, whilst also enabling them to learn from the past and apply their learning to the relevance of today’s society. We encourage learners to make links between society, people and the physical environment, and work to make well-rounded, intellectually curious young people with critical thinking skills, with empathy and respect for the views of others. We strive to keep our curriculum relevant and up to date, incorporating contemporary issues such as climate change and conflict alongside historical comparisons in all the humanities subjects.

The Computing Faculty is a specialist team. Our classrooms are well equipped, with at least one PC (or Mac) per student. Our vision is to create a safe and creative learning environment where students take responsibility for their own learning and strive for success.

Many students go on to higher study and employment in IT, Media, Computer Science, Engineering or Technology and our courses provide a superb stepping stone. We want students to gain an understanding of the wider business and tech environment, learning about cutting edge, modern organisations and become more aware of the world around them.

The Technology and the Arts faculty strive to equip pupils with the skills and qualifications to go on to become the next generation of creative practitioners in their chosen field. Throughout KS3 students will be provided with the opportunity to study a varying range of different creative and technological subjects, instilling creativity and core subject knowledge to enable them to solve real life problems.  Within the Technology and the Arts faculty, students will experience a breadth of creative lessons including Music, Art, Performing Arts, Design and Technology, Textiles and Food and Nutrition.

PE Intent: We aim to develop every students physical literacy competence and confidence to take part in a broad range of activities that become an integral part of their life style.

Physical Education at The Chase develops every pupil physically, socially, mentally and emotionally. Lessons are challenging, exciting, well taught and offer an opportunity to experience a range of activities. Physical Education develops pupils’ competence, self-esteem and confidence to take part in a broad range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, in and out of school. They develop their motor competence showing fluency in specialised physical movements with increasing complexity. Pupils demonstrate, apply and analyse a wide range of rules, strategies, tactics and compositional ideas and concepts across a range of activities in competitive situations.  All pupils know how to exercise safely and how to prepare to participate in exercise. They can show and explain the importance and impact of sports participation along with the barriers which they may need to overcome. When they are performing, they think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make informed decisions. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them.

The Social Sciences faculty at The Chase includes Business, Economics, Psychology and Sociology. All the courses are offered at A level and the faculty is based across the road in L Block. The teaching staff in the faculty have a wealth of experience and enthusiasm for their subjects. As a faculty, we encourage our students to become independent learners, acquiring skills in critical thinking as well as being able to analyse and evaluate across a range of topics. Whilst equipping students with such skills, we aim to help them grow into confident young adults, ready to take on the challenges of life in today’s constantly evolving society.
