All subjects will set challenging homework at St. Patrick's & St. Brigid's College that consolidates learning, deepens understanding and prepares pupils well for work to come.

As a college, we know that homework encourages the development of key independent learning skills and allows all to take full ownership of their learning. Developing good learning skills at home at an early age will help to prepare pupils for the demands at Key Stage 4 and will in turn aid progression and development beyond college. Therefore, we place great emphasis on homework at St. Patrick's & St. Brigid's College.

Consistent homework has been proven to increase the success of pupils.  All pupils are to receive a range of homework tasks every day from different subject areas.

KS3 pupils should spend approximately 30-40 minutes per subject each night.

KS4 pupils should spend approximately 1 hour per subject each night.
