In order to help students organise their homework effectively, the school subscribes to an online homework planner called Show My Homework. Students can see exactly what homework tasks have been set and how many days they have left to complete them. They will also be able to download associated resources if they have lost the original.
How much homework will students be given?The amount of homework and independent study which students will get will vary from day to day. Show My Homework will help them to organise their time and to prioritise tasks. As a guide, each year group should expect the following:
Year 7: 1 to 1.25 hours per day
Year 8: 1.5 hours per day
Year 9: 1.5 to 2 hours per day
GCSE: 2 to 3 hours per day
A Level: 5 hours per subject per week
