Homework Policy

Homework is a vital element to the education of Sacred Heart College pupils. Our homework policy and procedures enable us to develop high educational standards, in line with our College aims.

They reflect our commitment to learning and partnership between teachers and parents / carers to ensure that pupils use all opportunities to study effectively at home.

Pupils will be expected to present organised, neat and careful homework.


The following guidelines indicate the amount of time pupils are expected to spend on homework:

  • Key Stage 3: One and a half hours per night approx
  • Key Stage 4: Two to two and a half hours per night approx
  • Post 16: The pace and scale of homework will be indicated by assignment (3hrs per night)
