Regular homework is an essential part of the curriculum and the school seeks to work closely with parents to ensure that they have as much information as possible to support their son or daughter in this crucial area of their studies.  In Year 7, homework may take up to about one hour per night and the amount increases steadily as the students move up the school.

Homework can take a variety of forms, not all of which are written. All students receive a homework timetable at the start of each year, and the homework set is recorded in Student Planners with information regarding the deadline; some homework will take the form of assignments to be completed over a period of time. 

All homework can be viewed on Show My Homework which enables students and parents to access the tasks that have been set via the internet from home or the Library. In addition, reading of free choice books should play a daily part in each student's schedule, while for imminent tests and examinations, well-planned revision over a reasonable time is essential.

Students are helped to acquire the skills to plan and organise their work without supervision to provide a foundation for examination success later on. Homework Club runs Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 3.30 – 4.30 pm plus Tuesday and Friday 3.00 – 4.00 pm in the Library; all students are welcome to attend to undertake homework or study.
