Given the nature of study in KS4 and 5 the setting of homework is left to the professional judgement of teaching staff. Again it is recommended that homework is set regularly and appropriately. It is understood that there will be peaks and troughs at different times during the school year for each subject due to controlled assessments, varying examination dates etc.
Independent study should also be an expectation at KS4 and 5.
Homework / Study should take approximately 90 to 120 minutes in KS4.
Students should be working for a duration appropriate to their target grade and aspiration in KS5.
