Homework:
Homework flows out of work done in the lesson and is designed to encourage independence, to develop interest, to practise skills and to promote confidence. There is a homework timetable in order to avoid overloading on any one day and girls write down their homework in homework diaries noting ‘hand-in’ dates.

Girls will receive the following approximate amount of homework per day:

Year 7       1 hour
Year 8       1.5 hours
Year 9       1.5-2 hours
