After School

To do well in examinations, students must work hard both at school and at home. Homework is vital to reinforce the learning that takes place during lessons. Students are expected to complete homework tasks.

All homework set by teachers can be seen on 'My Child at School' (this online system gives parents access to their child's attendance and performance record).
