Homework refers to tasks that are completed outside of timetabled lessons. It contains an element of independent study in that it is not, usually, directly supervised by a teacher. Not all homework is done at home; in fact, for some students who find it difficult to work at home, or for some tasks which may require resources (books, software or equipment) more readily available at College, it is necessary or desirable to carry out the task in College.
Homework is set throughout the school and plays an important part in the learning process. We do not set homework for the sake of it, believing that it must be purposeful and help to consolidate learning and develop essential study skills.
All homework tasks should be recorded in students’ planners so that students and parents can see what homework needs completing and organise their time accordingly.
