Homework

Homework

As a college, we value homework and see it as an important part of the learning process.  Regular and meaningful homework is essential in supporting good learning habits. Students should therefore expect to receive homework regularly and in-line with each curriculum area’s expectations.

At the college we use an online system called Microsoft Teams to set homework.

Year 7 students will be shown how to access Microsoft Teams in IT lessons in the first 2 weeks of term. There are no additional passwords as students use their college login details.

Teachers monitor the completion of homework, and sanctions are issued in line with the college behaviour policy if it is not submitted by the deadline set.

The guideline for frequency of homework set in different subjects is outlined below. Please note that due to curriculum commitments, this may vary slightly throughout the year:
