Homework Overview

Homework in Year 7 and 8

Each student in Years 7, 8 has one large project (or Challenge) each year in History. Alongside this students have a termly Extended Homework. These are all assessed according to National Curriculum levels.

Homework at GCSE

At GCSE students will do 'Cheat Sheets' in preparation for their exams. Cheat sheets require students to take home the "cheat sheet" with exam questions on to plan out their answers.

They are set a deadline for when the test will be in class. On the day of the test, students MUST bring their plans and the teacher will roll a dice to see which question the students will do. Students can then use their plans to help them answer in timed conditions.

These cheat sheets mean that for every exam answer students practise, they have planned and revised several more. This requires students to be going back over the course and revising constantly, and has been shown to have a dramatic effect on students' confidence and exam performance where it is followed conscientiously

Homework at A Level

At A level students will do Cheat sheet exam questions alongside a great deal of reading and analysis tasks, presentations and summaries.
