All students are required to do homework which in most subjects is set on a weekly basis. A homework schedule is produced at the start of the school year (see below) and parents are asked to encourage their children to acquire the habit of doing their homework early in the evening and to ensure that it is done. The Library/Resource Centre is available for those students who prefer to work during the lunchtime or stay after school to complete homework. Staff help is always available. This facility is open from 9.00am until 4.30pm each day. Access to IT Resources is also available until 4.30pm.
Homework may consist of practical work, reading, research, learning or written work. The amount set varies according to age and ability and the time taken will also vary. If you have any concerns relating to homework, please contact the appropriate subject teacher or Head of House. Failure to complete work regularly is recorded in the Work Diary. Homework can make a significant difference to the achievement of students.
All homework is available on-line; to see what has been set please see the ‘Show my homework’ link.
