KS4 English Curriculum
KS4 Maths Curriculum
All students have Knowledge Organisers from the current term of work. They are expected to refer to these when undertaking routine homework. These can also be accessed via the academy website.

All students must complete ‘routine homework’ for 20 minutes each night, this is the minimum expectation. Students will be required to draw a heading of homework in their Ready to Learn books and continue to write out the knowledge from memory as they have bee shown (covering up the knowledge in the knowledge organiser) and then self-checking, correcting any errors in Red pen – this is a continuation of the work they have been doing in their Prep Time Sessions.
