Homework refers to any work or activities which students are expected to do outside lesson time. It is recognised that well organised homework plays a vital role in raising standards of achievement by students and is an essential part of the way in which students are prepared for tests, examinations and life long learning. Good practice suggests that the amount of time which should be spent by students, on average, on homework should fall within the following ranges:
Year 7 3 – 4 hours independent learning each week
Year 8 45 – 90 minutes per day
Year 9 1 – 2 hours per day
Years 10 & 11 1.5 – 2.5 hours per day
All students are issued with a Homework timetable at the start of the year.
The Homework Timetable outlines the homework expectations for each week. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 are also expected to complete ‘project’ style homework throughout the year. This may involve research or use of the internet. Students who do not have such facilities at home are encouraged to use the excellent facilities available in the Learning Resource Centre.
