Our Subjects

Cheney offers excellently taught academic and vocational courses, and an enrichment programme that we tailor to the needs and preferences of our aspirational students. We all challenge ourselves to continually improve and our work with key partners and experts ensures our provision is cutting edge and inspirational.

Alongside our A Level courses, we offer a range of Level 3 BTECs, which are equivalent to a full A Level. In Science, we also offer a Double Applied Science Award which is equivalent to two full A Levels.

Faculty Videos

Thank you to filmmakers Roísín Anderson and Rob Lemkin for these videos which give an overview of each of our faculties.

Subject Videos

As we were unable to run a face-to-face open event in 2021, owing to Covid restrictions, many of our staff and students made subject information videos.  We weren't able to produce a subject video for every subject, so if you can't find what you are looking for here, please see the relevant faculty video above and the subject guide for more information. You can also get in touch with staff to find out more.
