Homework

At Bilbrook Middle School teachers set homework for the following reasons:

  • to encourage a positive attitude to learning;
  • to improve learning and progress;
  • to stimulate intellectual curiosity and encourage independent learning;
  • to consolidate skills and knowledge;
  • to reinforce and extend classwork.

Students are expected to make a regular commitment to homework and are encouraged to manage their own time with the assistance of a homework diary.

The times listed below show the amount of homework that students can expect to have.
