Academic Expectations

The Middle School is about preparing students for Senior School and possibly further academic study. It is therefore necessary to develop a habit of completing homework to enable consolidation of learning and as an extension of learning. The following information indicates an approximation of the number of hours students are expected to spend completing homework and assignments each night.

Year 6, 20-30 mins

Homework reflects work done in class providing consolidation experiences. Regular homework will be given in core subjects such as Mathematics and English.

Assignments are set according to content taught and the expectations of amount of work to be done on them at home will fluctuate during each term. Students are also expected to read for at least 20 minutes each night as a part of the Accelerated Reader Program.
