Homework - Directed Learning Programme

This page has more information about homework and how to access Satchel One (Show My Homework), a homework platform for students.

Homework is an integral part of learning at HGABR. Research shows that high quality homework has a positive impact on pupil progress. The impact of homework, on average, is up to five months additional progress (EEF).

At HGABR we believe that homework plays a key role in developing commitment, resilience, and optimism in our students. Homework enhances pupil learning, accelerates achievement and develops independent learning skills, which are vital to their success in life.


  • Meet the needs and aspirations of all students
  • Stretch and challenge students to develop their personal potential
  • Prepare the students for the challenges of working independently and without the close supervision of the class teacher


  • Ensure that all students have the opportunity to practice and consolidate skills, conduct in-depth inquiry, prepare for lessons or revise for assessments
  • Ensure that all students have the opportunity to engage in learning that extends and develops what they have learnt in the classroom
  • Ensure that the teacher is able to assess what a student is able to produce without close supervision


  • Years 7, 8 and 9 will receive no more than 45 minutes per week per subject
  • Years 10 and 11 will receive no more than 1 hour per week per subject
  • Sixth form students should be completing up to 15 hours per week
