Use of technology in the classroom

Students in primary school have constant access to a computer with at least 4 workstations in every classroom, allowing for a consistent approach to delivering ICT and catering for spontaneity. Secondary students receive two periods of ICT a week, with the fully resourced ICT suites being made available before school, during break times and after-school if the students wish to use it for independent guided study.

Classrooms throughout the school are fully equipped with interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, projectors, individual workstations, laptops and iPads.

Do teachers assign homework to their students?

Yes

Approximate hours of homework given

Depends on the subject and grade level.
A general guide is that tasks should be twenty minutes per subject for Year 7, rising to forty minutes per subject for Year 9. Longer tasks might require a longer period in which to complete them but it is expected that students in Year 9 are working to a maximum of two hours per night.
Students in the (I)GCSE programme (Years 10 and 11) are set homework tasks that may involve devoting additional weekend time to personal study. In addition to short specific tasks, some homework assignments may be part of longer research or project work.
