Homework

Calendar of tasks Set by Teachers


Homework supports and builds on the knowledge and skills students acquire during lessons. This experience of homework fosters positive attitudes and the skills that students need to be successful and independent life-long learning.

We support students by providing a supervised study area every day after school in the library from 3-4pm, and subject specific sessions throughout the week (please refer to the extra-curricular timetable).
