Home Learning Timetables

Please can parents support their children with their home learning. Our home learning expectations are:

Years 7 and 8 follow fixed home learning timetables. Each piece of home learning should take 30 minutes, giving students between 1 hour and 1 ½ hours of home learning per night.

 

 

 

Years 9-11 do not have a fixed home learning timetable, but will be set the following home learning. Each piece of home learning should take 1 hour, giving students and average of 2 hours of home learning per night:

English and Maths – 2 pieces per week

Science – 1 piece for each of the 3 sciences per week

Option subjects – 1 piece per week

Philosophy and Religion (Years 10 and 11) – 1 piece per week for those taking double or combined science; 1 piece per fortnight for those taking triple or separate sciences.

Mobile Phones 

Mobile phones are the responsibility of the student not the school. They are brought in at their own risk. All electronic equipment (e.g. mobile phones, mp3 players, headphones, gaming devices) must be kept out of sight. If any such items are seen or heard they will be confiscated and parents will be expected to collect them. They will not be returned to students. As with mobile phones, the school is unable to take any responsibility for such items.
