Homework

All lessons are fully supported by our homework programme. Parents are requested to help by providing a suitable workplace at home for their child and adequate time to fulfil their study commitments. In Year 7 the homework routine starts early in the Autumn Term. Form Teachers will give your child a copy of the individual homework timetable for you to sign and return, thus confirming that you know exactly what should be done and when.

All homework is published by the teaching staff on ‘Show My Homework’ and both students and parents can access this via the internet or a smartphone app.

Learning support

Learning support is widely available here for anyone who needs it. Children are able to pick up revision tips, hone study skills, access ongoing help with dyslexia or simply find out more about their personal learning style.

What’s more, teachers are always on hand to offer extra help and Sixth Formers mentor younger pupils through buddying schemes for maths and reading.
