Homework is an important part of life at school and demonstrates independence of thought as well as ensuring that students develop time management skills.

Setting of homework

  • (Years 7, 8, 9), there are no set days for a subject to set homework. Homework is set weekly for core subjects and MFL and fortnightly for Humanities (15-30 minutes). There is an expectation that other subjects set homework throughout the term but no set number is given. Instead, they work on a set time expectation. For example, Art is likely to set a longer project per term in place of a weekly or fortnightly task.
  • There is an expectation that there will be a 3 day time period between the setting and collection of each piece of homework at both Key Stages.
  • All homework will be set using wwww.showmyhomework.com. Students new to the school will receive their log in details in September or via Tutors for in-year admissions. If you do not have a login or are struggling to access the website, please contact L Creswick. Contact details are available in the Staff Contact Directory below:

(Year 10 and Year 11), homework is normally set weekly (30-45 minutes). For some subjects, longer homework tasks may need to be set and so it may be set less frequently but the same time frames will be adhered to (with the exception of Core PE and RE).
