Home Learning

Home Learning develops independent study and enables students to become life-long learners. Home Learning is an essential element for success in a child’s education. It enables each child to further enhance the knowledge that they have learnt in the classroom.  

Why Home Learning matters - five key reasons 

As the world of education changes, Home Learning is more important than ever. So, what are the five most important reasons Home Learning is important in modern education?  

  1. GCSE courses are no longer assessed through ‘controlled assessments’ meaning a greater emphasis on exams. Home Learning supports retention of information to develop long-term memory, which increases the chances of success for examinations.   

  1. With the emergence of the internet, information is more readily available than any other time in history. Relevant, investigative, Home Learning tasks inspire pupils to explore this wealth of information for themselves.  

  1. Beyond academic success, important life skills can be learnt through independent study. Only by working without the support of teachers can pupils learn how to self-manage and find answers for themselves.  

  1. It isn't the work completed in class that will ultimately decide pupil's GCSE results. It's the hours at home or in the library that allow pupils to develop the knowledge and skills required for success.  

  1. Home Learning can be fun! It’s an opportunity for parents and carers to take an active interest in what their child is doing.
