All students are expected to do homework in accordance with the published timetable gradually increasing during a student’s time in school. Not all homework is written; it may involve reading, watching a TV programme, learning, individual research and/or revision, making a model or attending an extra-curricular sports club.

The task selected by the subject teacher will be appropriate to the ability of the students. In the 'Homework Handbook' there is a table illustrating the types and common methods used to assess homework.  The document ('Homework Survival Guide') is help for parents on how to support your child in doing the homework set for them. 

On the table below you can also click a year group and find all the home learning tasks for each of the curriculum subjects.
