We use Show My Homework (SMH), a programme that is embedded in the school web-site to allow students and parents/carers to access homework tasks.  This is a vehicle to communicate all homework with students and parents/carers efficiently and effectively. We expect all teachers to make full use of this resource.

Homework should allow our students the opportunity to work on a range of tasks such as:

   • Continue the work of the classroom
   • Consolidation of learning
   • Reading
   • Practical tasks
   • Creative tasks
   • Preparation of future work through investigation
   • Using IT Oral practice (e.g. interviewing

Students in Years 7 & 8
should do tasks that take approximately 30 minutes to complete.


Students in Year 9
should do tasks that take up to 45 minutes to complete.


Students in Years 10 & 11
should do tasks that take at least 1 hour to complete.


Sixth Form students should expect to do at least 3 hours per week per subject.
