Homework overview
Key Stage Three
In years 7 and 8 students rotate around four subjects (Food, Textiles, Graphics, and Resistant Materials) and will therefore receive homework tasks at different times of the year depending upon the option being followed. They will complete three homework tasks in each area.  


In year 9 students take three subjects rather than four and  have four homework tasks from each area that they have opted for.
