Homework

 

Homework is a crucial extension of the School day and is set in all years. Careful and thorough completion is essential if real progress is to be made. Parents are asked to ensure adequate conditions for quiet study without distraction.

Lower School pupils have one and a half to two hours homework each evening. Homework diaries are kept in the first two years. In the Middle School GCSE tasks require about 2.5 hours each evening. A homework timetable is produced at the start of each year.

In the Sixth Form students organise and plan their own schedule of study. Assignments have different timescales according to the nature of the subject. Sixth-Formers are expected to undertake considerable individual research and reading. In addition to study periods within the school day, they are expected to do a minimum of 20 hours of concentrated study a week at home.
