Homework

Our teachers embrace homework as an opportunity to provide activities which stretch and challenge students beyond what was covered in class that week, to add breadth and depth to their understanding of the subject content, and to carry out tasks that reinforce concepts and topics that are needed for success.

Research shows that an hour of homework per weekday evening is the equivalent of an extra years' worth of learning over the five years that students are in secondary education!

All students will be given a Homework Timetable in their first week of the new Academic Year, which they can transcribe into their Planner or Notebook, so they know what the expectations are from each subject and can plan their evening activities accordingly.
