Homework is an important 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.  

Homework should be set using Bromcom (more information below) so that students are aware of exactly what to do, where to access resources and when the homework is due in. Homework should always be accessible to students of all abilities.    

Approximate time to be spent on homework increases according to year group, but most activities will take between 30 and 40 minutes.  

Here are the Homework Timetables for 2023-24:

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

Year 10 and 11

Homework on Bromcom

We use our MIS platform Bromcom to make sure that homework is more effective and accessible for all students. Each student has a Bromcom account where they view all the homework set by their teachers. This will mean that students only need to look in one place to know exactly what they need to do and when they need to do it! Our dedicated page for students and Bromcom is here.

Parents and carers can view the homework that has been set in their MCAS (My Child at School) Bromcom account. Further information for parents is available on our MCAS support page for parents and carers.
