Approximate hours of homework given

Throughout the preparatory years teachers are keenly aware that a balance must be struck between academic progress through homework and the child enjoying a home life free of undue labour imposed from school. Homework increases as the child grows older. Parents should expect that an increased amount of homework will become essential during the period before examinations. At the secondary level, homework and private study become an increasingly vital element as the child progresses up through the school.
