Optional Home Work:

The science department endeavours to sets project style homework at the start of each unit. The homework will be directly related to the unit of study whilst allowing students to tailor them to own interests.

Whilst homework is totally voluntary the science department believes that it can be an excellent opportunity for parents and carers to support learning and have an informed understanding of their own son or daughters learning in science
