Tottington High School


The tables below provide an overview of the amount/frequency of homework that pupils will be set at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

Specific homework pieces are set by teaching staff on Show My Homework, a web app which all students can access on their internet-connected devices. Parents and carers are also provided with a code to enable them to sign in to the app and monitor their child’s homework. 

Please note, we do not roll out Show My Homework to year 7 students until after the first half term break in October. This is to allow new students to settle in before we give them a new system to cope with. For the first half term, year 7 students are issued with homework on paper. Parent codes are normally issued during the first week back after October half term.
