Homework carried out regularly throughout secondary school can be equivalent to an additional year of study! You should encourage your child to complete the homework recorded in their student planner.

Homework should be undertaken in a quiet place where there are no distractions. Students are likely to achieve more by working regularly for relatively short periods (one hour at a time), than in a single long session when concentration will lapse.

All students are issued with a homework timetable at the start of the academic year. This timetable should be recorded in their student planner. This indicates the day that subjects will set homework.
