Homework

Homework is a valuable part of your education. It helps you to consolidate your learning and explore your subjects further. The timetable below shows you when you will be set homework and when it has to be handed in. There are some useful links in this Student Work Area of the website.

Your homework will be set on Microsoft Teams and you will complete some of it through the online platforms listed below. This short video provides further details. 

 

The following time allocations should be regarded as guidelines; the quality and relevance of the homework is more important than the quantity.
