The King's School Founded 1545

Achievement for All


Homework is an essential part of the curriculum.

The homework set at The King’s School will contain an element of independent study and is an important part in raising student achievement. Students will be provided with a wide variety of homework tasks which will be relevant and timely to their needs at that particular point in the academic year. These may involve extended research, completion of an exercise started in class, preparatory work for forthcoming tasks in lessons, practical work to further develop skills and understanding in a subject or, particularly in preparation for internal or external exams, revision.

Students may also receive homework which cover a number of weeks e.g. projects/research tasks and revision which may take two or more weeks to complete.

Further details of our homework policy can be found in our Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting, Homework, Literacy and Numeracy Policy.
