Homework is an essential part of the curriculum. Acquiring the habit of study at home stands children in good stead throughout their education, and helps develop the ability to work independently as well as extend work completed in the classroom.
Lower School (1st to 3rd Form) pupils can expect one hour a night of homework in order to reinforce what is learnt in class, and to develop the investigative and information-gathering skills essential for high standards of coursework in preparation for GCSE.
For Middle School (4th to 5th Form) pupils can expect homework to be between one hour and two hours a night. Many pupils stay and attend homework club after school where they can focus on their studies and with the assistance of a teacher to ask questions if needed.
