You will be expected to do homework. Homework is a valuable part of secondary education. It allows you to practise skills learned in the classroom, to develop your ability to research, and helps you to form the habits of individual study necessary to achieve success in the later stages of your education – indeed in the rest of your life.
You will be given a homework timetable as a guide and a Student Planner. This will enable you to plan your time in order to hand your homework in on time. The amount of homework varies according to your age and ability. In Year 7 you will receive up to an hour a night. This will increase each year through to Year 11.
Homework is supported by the Virtual Learning Environment. This gives you access to materials you need to complete the work on a computer at home.
Your family can help you by providing a peaceful place for you to do your homework, by encouraging you and valuing what you learn at home.
