Homework

Homework

Homework is an important part of learning. It gives students the opportunity to improve their fluency, confidence and supports deeper learning. The exploration of topics and subjects in self-directed and creative ways develops a sense of responsibility for their own learning and academic independence. Homework should be varied to allow students to develop their skills and to improve the standard of their work.

The homework timetable for Year 7 and 8 students is shown below.  Specific information about the homework set in each subject area can be viewed from the Faculty pages.   If you have any queries linked to homework then please contact the class teacher initially. If further guidance is required, please contact the relevant curriculum leader.

Homework Rota 2020-21

Students in Years 7 and 8 receive weekly homework booklets, one subject each week, as shown in the table below. Homework booklets are not given out prior, during and shortly after our assessment weeks.  Students should spend this time revising their work. Core refers to English & Maths. In most weeks this will run alongside homework booklets but may also be set as the principal homework of that week or in addition to optional CTG (Close The Gap) tasks.
