Home learning is an integral part of developing every student and ensuring that they reach their academic potential.
The purpose of home learning is:
- To consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding.
- To extend learning.
- To encourage students to develop the confidence and self-discipline to work on their own.
- To develop time management skills.
All students are set homework tasks by their teachers. This additional work helps to ensure that all students are fully supported in progressing towards their targets and consolidating their learning.

This is a great opportunity for students who need extra help with their homework or just want to do their homework in a quiet place.
