Home Learning Resources
If required to work from home, all students across the school can access live lessons via google classroom.
The Trust have also put together resources for students to work through at home. Please find these below. [Depending on your internet browser, you may need to copy and paste the links, or download the pdf file to access them.]
Homework is important for students to develop time management skills, consolidate learning from the school day and create depth and understanding of topics away from the classroom.
Homework will be in the form of regular “memory recall” homework activities that will be assessed online or in class. Students will receive their results quickly and will be given feedback on how to improve.
Years 7, 8 and 9 students will receive homework in Maths, English, Science, Geography, History and Modern Foreign Languages regularly. Students may receive additional extended projects in these and their other subjects. To support your home learning, we recommend students engage in as many clubs as possible. There is a huge range available to students with these changing on a termly basis.
Years 10 and 11 will receive additional homework depending on the nature of each subject on a weekly basis.
At Post 16, Year 12 and 13 students will receive an hour of homework per lesson to ensure they are well prepared for future endeavours.
Homework will be provided electronically in most cases, using platforms such as Class Charts and Google Classroom. Students will also be told verbally during their lesson.
Should students wish to complete homework in school, the LRC runs Homework Club each day of the week. There will be one staff member available from 8.15am to 8.30am and from 3pm to 4pm daily.
We are use a portal called “Class Charts” to allow parents/carers to keep track of their child’s behaviour, view attendance, access timetables, view, support and monitor their homework, track detentions and view announcements.
Class Charts can be accessed via the Class Charts website https://www.classcharts.com/ or through their iOS and Android apps.

Students who are accessing live lessons should do so via their google classrooms from their school email.
