Each year group in Key Stage 3 and 4 has a homework schedule to ensure a manageable volume of homework is set throughout the week. Up to two homework tasks may be set each day. English, maths and science will be set once a week. Other subjects will be set once a fortnight. Post 16 students have varied timetables and homework will reflect the individual learning programme of each student. As students move through each year group, work set will begin to involve longer pieces of homework, reflecting their age.

Year 9 GCSE subject choices

All students in Year 9 need to make choices about which subjects they will study in Years 10 and 11.
