St Peter's School


All students in English are set one piece of homework per week either as part of a project or a scheme of work. Homework tasks should be used to consolidate or extend the students’ learning.

Key Stage Three:

  • Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 are set thirty minutes of homework per week.
  • Every Key Stage Three scheme of work includes a homework project sheet which can be set at the start of the new term or separated into weekly tasks.
  • Homework projects should contain at least six tasks as well as an extension task. The extension task often makes links to other subjects, e.g. Art, History or Design Technology and encourages creativity.

Key Stage Four:

  • Students in Years 10 and 11 are set thirty minutes of homework per week and the task is decided by the class teacher.

Key Stage Five:

  • English Literature students are set two pieces of homework per week – one task from each class teacher.
