Homework

Homework is important for students to develop independent study and good learning habits. Research also shows that homework benefits factual knowledge, self discipline, attitudes to learning and problem solving skills. All of the above are essential for the educational growth of our students as they progress to GCSE and beyond.

Our homework platform, Satchel One, has many benefits, including having all homework shown in one place, to help organise a timetable of learning outside the classroom. It also allows parents to be involved, to keep track of, and encourage your children to engage with the homework tasks set. Video guides on using Satchel One for Parents can be found by clicking the logo below:

In the secondary phase, students should spend the following amount of time completing their homework each evening:

  • Year 7, 8 and 9 - between 30 minutes and one hour
  • Years 10 and 11 - between one and two hours
  • Years 12 and 13 - minimum of two hours

The above timings are guidelines. In the lead-up to tests and exams, student must recognise that the more time they spend working independently, the greater their chance of success will be.
