Homework is an integral part of a student's education, allowing the opportunity for consolidation of work done in school and for self-supported study at home: it may take many forms, as appropriate, including written work, research, learning, extended projects, practical projects and oral activities.

The Homework Timetable indicates which night each subject's homework is to be set; not by when it needs to be done. Your child’s teachers will decide when the homework is to be handed in.


The structure of the timetable is designed to encourage KS3 students to plan their workload throughout the key stage, so that they become self-disciplined enough to approach GCSE coursework requirements in a positive way. 

Students in Year 10 receive a booklet of coursework and homework information for the GCSE courses and this can be viewed here. The 2016-2018 booklet, relevant to Year 11 students, can be viewed here.

 

Here are the Homework Timetables for 2016-2017:

Year 7 Homework Timetable

Year 8 and 9 Homework Timetable

Year 10 and 11 Homework Timetable


A record of the homework set should be kept in the Student Planner, which students are required to use throughout Years 7 to 11. Students are issued with Planners by their house tutors. Planners are checked regularly by house tutors and by parents/carers.
