Our homework policy states:
• Encourage students to develop the skills, confidence and motivation needed to study effectively on their own. This is vital for the future of lifelong learning and adaptability.
• Consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding developed at school.
• Extend school learning.
• Sustain the involvement of parents and carers in the management of students’ learning and keep them informed about the work students are doing.
• Manage particular demands such as GCSE coursework.
Tasks that are set for homework will have a clear learning objective and be linked to the programme of study. They may offer development and/or extension of learning for all students. Tasks may include:
Marking and feedback will be given in line with college policy. Students will be provided with feedback on what they are doing well and what they need to improve.
The homework timetable for all year groups is posted on the College website. Please note that some departments set extended projects termly as part of the homework programme to help you support your son/daughter. These will be issued to students during lessons.
The Learning Resource Centre (LRC)
The Learning Resource Centre is equipped with ICT facilities to allow students to develop their work or research skills in an independent environment with sufficient support and advice available from the College Librarian. The wide selection of books and other reading materials will assist students in widening their personal literacy and reading skills as well as enabling them to develop and complete homework or personal study in a quiet and reflective environment.
Opening times: All day through breaks and lunchtimes, from 08:00 until 16:00.
