We consider it part of our responsibility to prepare students for the adult world where a 37‐40 hour working week is commonplace. Therefore, in addition to 9 hours lesson time and 2 supervised study periods in each subject per fortnight, we expect all students to be spending at least 7 hours per subject per week on independent work (for students taking 3 A Levels). This could be formal homework set by your teacher or additional work to support learning or revision.

Students are required to keep an independent log of work done, this is monitored by the form tutor on a weekly basis. It focuses on  developing metacognitive and organisational skills whilst providing structure to students’ independent study time.
