Homework

Homework is set for every subject every week.  Most homework is posted on the school's VLE.  Through the VLE pupils can access revision materials, quizzes and task relevant to their year and subject.

In some circumstances homework may not be set. However, it is extremely unlikely that pupils will have been allowed to complete homework during lesson time. 

We recommend that in years 7, 8 and 9  pupils have a maximum of 1 to 1.5 hours per night, building up from roughly 20 minutes per subject set per lesson in Year 7 to 30 minutes in Year 9.    In Years 10 and 11, we recommend 1 to 1.5 hrs per subject per week in year 10 and 1.5 hrs max per subject for year 11.   Remember in Key Stage 4, there is no such thing as ‘no homework’ as there are always revision materials on the VLE.
