Home Learning

Home Learning is an important extension to the school day and enables students to consolidate their understanding of topics covered in their lessons. Independent study is a valuable skill for the future, especially for students going on to 6th Form and university.  We ask parents and carers to encourage students to complete their home learning on time to the best of their ability.  Study Rooms are available every day after school so that students can seek assistance and use the school resources if necessary. These rooms are supported by teaching staff and teaching assistants.
