Year 8 Homework Term 5
We passionately believe in supporting student learning outside of the classroom. Each curriculum area has listed their expectations for homework and independent study outside of lesson hours for both KS3 and KS4.
The homework club runs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.00pm to 4.00pm in the Learning Zone, offering a quiet and welcoming learning environment. You can access the computers, including the internet, iPads and a printer. One to one and group support is available if required. If you attend homework club you will be rewarded with Vivo miles.
