In addition to the 5 lessons per week, students are issued 2 homeworks which should
normally take about 2 hours per week.
Sometimes these homeworks will comprise topic specific questions. On other occasions
they will be past examination papers. Details will be available on the school homework
line for access by both students and parents 24-6. (Should you not know your pin
number, please contact the school office.)
Students are expected to complete the work set in its entirety and submit it on the
Once marked work has been returned, students should perform corrections. Assistance
can be sought in maths lessons, in the twice weekly Maths Clinic, or by fully revising
the relevant topics by watching the appropriate MathsWatch video. This stage is particularly
important as efforts can be focused on specific gaps in knowledge.
All students should spend a further 2 hours per week (rising to 3 per week as the
exams draw closer) working their way through the Mathswatch revision schedule. For
each topic, boys will watch a short video for around 10 minutes and then attempt
its accompanying worksheet. The entire course comprises approximately 150 individual
topics. It is imperative that students commence their revision schedule no later
than the November preceding their GCSE exam.
