Homework

Homework is an essential part of the school programme. It is important to encourage independent study, and we set out to make homework activities as varied as possible.

Homework activities will be set every week by departments through Microsoft Teams according to the learning plans, which will be shared with students.

Years 7 to 11 – Notes for Parents

  • Please encourage your child(ren) to start each homework task at the weekend so that they have time to ask teachers for help before their deadline
  • Meeting deadlines is a skill that children need your help in achieving, detentions will be set if deadlines are not met
  • Please encourage your child(ren) to present their work well – answers should be written out on paper, not squeezed onto the question sheet
  • Should your child(ren) require resources, such as: paper, coloured pens, etc., they should ask the relevant subject teacher or form tutor
  • Please contact Mrs Sewell (Assistant Headteacher) directly if you have any further questions or concerns
