Homework is an essential part of the curriculum.

The homework set at Birches Head Academy will contain an element of independent study and is an important part in raising student achievement. Students will be provided with a wide variety of homework tasks which will be relevant and timely to their needs at that particular point in the academic year. These may involve extended research, completion of an exercise started in class, preparatory work for forthcoming tasks in lessons, practical work to further develop skills and understanding in a subject or, particularly in preparation for internal or external exams, revision.

Students may also receive homework which cover a number of weeks e.g. projects/research tasks and revision which may take two or more weeks to complete.


GCSEPod has been a fantastic resource for our children and teachers. Our students have used the Pods to revise, target weaknesses and to catch-up with work missed through absence. Increasingly, teachers are using the Pods as starters and plenaries in their lessons, and they are also setting homework on the platform.
