Do teachers assign homework to their students?

Yes

Approximate hours of homework given

From Year 1 onwards homework is set, increasing in length and scope as a pupil progresses through the school. Through homework QC is seeking to generate a variety of worthwhile learning experiences in support of those provided in school

Primary children are encouraged to read with or to their parents, depending on the level reached. Support at home undoubtedly contributes to a child’s success in this area. Children will also, at various stages, be asked to learn spellings or multiplication tables. Older children may be asked to complete unfinished work at home or undertake research or revision work for a subsequent lesson. In Year 6, pupils are tested on the core subjects and are given homework time to revise for these tests.

Homework gives secondary pupils practice in managing their own learning, fulfilling targets and meeting deadlines, thereby acquiring a sense of responsibility. Not all homework is in the form of written exercises. Learning, reading, researching and revising are also valuable activities.

To help pupils manage their homework, they are provided with homework diaries and these are checked regularly by class teachers and form tutors. This is an area where QC depends on parents to give active help and encouragement.

- Secondary Department – pupils are required to take a test in English and Mathematics and Spanish if applicable.
- Sixth Form (years 12 and 13) – entry at this level depends on GCSE results and a personal reference from previous school.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

The school, recognising that each child is unique, aims to satisfy the educational needs of each and every one of its pupils. Where a pupil has specific educational needs, every effort is made to enable him or her to overcome them within the constraints of the resources available to the school.

The school does not, however, specialise in supporting particular categories of special needs. Parents are, therefore, strongly advised to discuss with the school any known difficulties their child might have when applying for admission, in order to ascertain that these difficulties can be met.
