Homework is an essential part of learning. It helps students to consolidate what they have learnt in class; it gives them a chance to prepare for work to come, and helps them to develop independent study skills. Each student receives a student planner at the start of the school year.
Students in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 will be set homework on a regular basis. They should write homework that has been set in their planners, both to help themselves and to provide a record. In addition, students should use Independent Learning opportunities to further their progress.
Homework club and library homework support
The homework club (at lunch time in VQ6, at the end of the corridor) and the Library offers a welcoming working environment where students can develop their learning skills.
The library is staffed 12.30pm to 1pm and 3pm to 4pm daily to support homework.
The Library has 24 computers for student work and independent research. Information folders, newspapers and journals complete the resources and help is always available for students. The lunch club has a further 25 computers.
