High School Homework

Pupils have an organised homework chart to ensure that the amount of homework given is apportioned for each subject and that it is challenging, interesting, constructive and rewarding.  It is an essential part of school life.

Pupils are expected to spend the following time on their homework daily:

  • Year 7 & 8 – 1 Hour
  • Year 9 – 1 ½ Hours
  • Year 10 and 11 – 2 to 2½ Hours

An additional hour must be added when coursework is required.

Pupils must have a designated area at home to complete their homework, free from distractions, to ensure that good quality homework is completed.

Teachers make clear deadlines to ensure that pupils manage their time effectively and work to high levels in all subjects.
