Key Stage 3
Students' learning will be checked every 3-4 lessons through in-class quizzes. One week prior to any in-class quiz, Students will be provided with the key learning in which they will spend 30-45 minutes preparing for each one at home.
In total, students in Year 7 and 8 should spend between 4-5 hours per week on this learning, this will increase to between 5-6 hours per week in Year 9. In addition to this, each subject provides a menu of different extension tasks at the start of each topic. Students are encouraged to apply their learning by self-selecting which tasks to complete. All Key Stage 3 home learning will be available for students to view on MyLearning.
