Students develop their independent learning skills through the completion of homework. Homework is the generic name applied to independent or group work completed outside the lesson. It can take a wide variety of forms and has the potential to fulfill many functions. Homework may be set in order to ensure that students repeat, complete and embed learning or apply it in a new context. It may involve research and fresh learning that complements or extends the curriculum covered in the classroom. It may be the vehicle by which students address individual misconceptions or correct pieces of classwork. It may demonstrate the acquisition of skills as well as knowledge and also be a preparation for and contribution to a future lesson.

Consequently, the setting of homework will vary from subject to subject and within subjects throughout the year. Learning in some subjects (such as Languages and Maths) is often best supported by the completion of short tasks that follow up the lesson content. Other subjects may set extended tasks or projects that are to be completed over a number of weeks.

KS4 students should use some of the study time allocated  to go over and revise topics covered on a regular basis throughout the course. They may do this by revising from their own notes, revision guides or using internet based resources.
