Homework is an important part of the learning process and all students are expected to complete homework to support and improve their progress in each subject. Tasks set are designed to consolidate, extend and enrich student knowledge and understanding and to help students develop the skills they will need for lifelong learning. These skills include the ability to work independently, being able to organise their work and meet deadlines.
All of the internal examinations that students will sit in years 7-10 and the external examinations at the end of Year 11 and Year 13 require students to be able to recall knowledge, explain the information that they have learnt from their courses and to analyse and evaluate this information. Homework enables students to develop the skills required to be successful in their examinations including; effective learning skills, the ability to study, revision strategies and exam technique.
Homework is set and monitored through WISE. All students and parents are registered onto this system and can use it to keep track of the homework that they are required to complete. Parents are encouraged to review with their children successful completion of homework and to support them in developing the organisational skills to ensure homework deadlines are met.
Students or parents who have any difficulty in accessing this system should contact Mr A Weatherhogg Vice Principal (Teaching and Learning)
