Do teachers assign homework to their students?

We believe in a balance between school and family time

Approximate hours of homework given

At times we will encourage our students to revise and for example read at home coming up to assessments and tests or if they have a project. With that we also believe in balance so we like our students to take part in extracurricular activities and further themselves in non academic ways too. Over the Summer months we provide work (not compulsory to complete) so students don't fall behind and can refresh their memories before returning after the Summer.
