Study and Homework

Homework and study are integral parts of a student’s education. Through regular study, a student is able to develop study habits and skills that are essential for intellectual growth and academic achievement.

Remember, homework is set for the purposes of practice, preparation and/or extension. Homework can include:

  • Daily revision of lessons, which can be done by writing three key points about concepts learnt in classes each day into a revision notebook;
  • Ongoing revision and study for assessments such as tests and SACs;
  • Work set by teachers to be done overnight or by a set date;
  • Assignments.
