We believe that homework provides an opportunity for independent study and consolidation of work started in lessons. Homework may take many forms such as reading, research, revision, writing essays or notes, learning spellings or new vocabulary, watching or listening to particular programmes, drawing and forms of market research.


The length of time pupils should spend on their homework will vary according to their age and the task set, as a guide we suggest homework should take the following length of time.

Year Duration per Subject
7 25-30 minutes
8 30-40 minutes
9 40-45 minutes
10 45-50 minutes
11 50-60 minutes


In Year 7, 8 and 9 (KS3), RE & Art will be set when the teacher feels that it is appropriate.
