Homework

Homework plays an important part in supporting learning.  It contributes to developing skills such as independent study, self-discipline and personal organization and will be set as follows:

  • In KS3 the core subjects (English, Maths, Science) will set one homework per week. All other subjects will set one piece per fortnight.
  • In KS4 each examined subject sets one piece per week. Subjects can also set an additional piece a week if needed.
  • In KS3 and KS4 students will have more than one night to complete any homework set.

Homework tasks can take a variety of forms:

  • They may be set directly from work done in the lesson.
  • They may be from a list which students are able to choose.
  • Some may take the form of extended projects.
  • In KS4 coursework may be set as homework.
  • Students may also be asked to improve a piece of work, responding to teachers’ marking.
