Homework & Revision

All pupils are expected to complete homework each week .  It is hoped that parents will take an interest in this and give their children the support and encouragement they deserve.  The amount of homework set will vary from group to group and may not always be written homework.  The majority of homework will be set through ‘Show My Homework’.

We run a homework club every Wednesday from 3.30pm – 4.30pm in the library.  Pupils from all year groups are welcome to attend.

From year 10, pupils are not only expected to do the homework set, but also any additional work in their own time which they consider necessary to reach the standard required for the external examination they will be sitting at the end of their courses.
From year 10 onwards pupils will be issued a username and password to access GCSEPod.
