Home Learning

Home learning is set regularly using the online platform “ShowMyHomework”. We regard home learning as being a very important factor to contribute to your learning. A home learning timetable is constructed at the start of each year and each student has a copy in their student planner. You must enter details of all home learning set in your student planner and check on your user account on ShowMyHomework every day!

For more information about using ShowMyHomework, please download our Student Guide.

Home learning could be one or more of the following:

  1. A continuation of written work
  2. A longer piece of coursework lasting for several homeworks
  3. A reading exercise
  4. Learning for a test
  5. Researching a topic
  6. An oral presentation

Where home learning is not completed or is regarded by the subject teacher as inadequately completed, a comment will be made by the teacher in the student planner or a letter may be written to your parent/carer. You may be asked to re-do the assignments. Your parents are encouraged to use the student planner to communication with the subject teacher regarding concerns over home learning. We recommend that you complete your home learning on the day that it is set and not the night before it is due in as you may be given other home learning tasks to do on the same night!
