In developing the key features of independent learning, we recognise the importance of regular quality homework for all students.  It is essential that any homework set is engaging and useful to the student.  Provision of homework should introduce a realistic challenge to students learning.

Homework Timetable

Each child will be issued with a personalised homework timetable. Examples are given below for each year group, and the frequency of homework which should be expected for each subject. If you have concerns that your child is not receiving their homework, please contact their Head of House.

Show My Homework

Show My Homework is an online tool to help keep track of homework that has been set.  Students can access their homework, resources and submit their homework.  They can also see their homework marks.

Your child will be issued with a Show My Homework login when they start in September, further information on Show My Homework is available at our Homework page.

How can I help my child with homework?

As a parent you can support your child with their independent learning by the use of Show My Homework.  With your parental log in you can view their homework calendar, look at their grade book and check to see the work they have completed.  You can also receive alerts and communicate with teachers.  Please contact school if you have not received your parental pin number.
