Students will be expected to undertake independent learning and do homework outside of the timetabled curriculum.

It is an expectation that students will catch up on missed classwork and homework as a result of absence. All homework and missed classwork can be found on the academy’s homework portal for which all students and parents are provided with personal login details at the start of each academic year.

All students will be set a short piece of homework every lesson. In key stage 3, at least one of the pieces of homework per week from each subject will be a learning homework to help to embed core knowledge. In key stage 4, students are set a learning homework or a retrieval task each lesson to ensure that they have the knowledge they require for examinations at their fingertips.

Kirkby College uses the Show My Homework app for students and parents to track their set homework. You can log in here.
